I am not sure what manipulations you're talking about; AFAICS the hard
stuff is done by winebuild anyway. What I don't like about C in this
case is that all the low-level stuff (realloc() and friends) makes the
code hard to read and prone to buffer overflows and the like.

Anyway, you do the work, you decide.

Yeah, the wine guys like low-level coding :-)
Perhaps I'll contribute a bash version of winewrap soon, just for fun.
