So the symbols only have to be overridden for within Wine? Because one
solution would be to have two pthread implementations linked in at once,
and to keep them separate (lots of fun with the current glibc linker,
but they are interested in adding features to do that).

At the moment they use something called monostub, which is a WineLib
app. That loads and initialises through "wine", then
loads and hosts the Mono VM inside it. They'd prefer to just dlopen()
the APIs as called via P/Invoke, but I got the impression they didn't
really know how to do that... is there much special setup involved when
you run "wine"?
