Well, see me discussing that with Bill a few days ago on the mailing
list archives. Basically you have to make the whole ELF process into a
WineLib app, at the moment you can't just call out from a standard linux
binary into WineLib. IIRC mplayer does this by copy and pasting some
wine code, then hacking it lots, even then that's only for codecs which
are extremely simple programs.

The basic problem is that there isn't any good way to initialise WineLib
without using the wine loader program at the moment.
