winebuild & Winelib

I am sorry, but I'm going to ask this without RTF{M,C}:

  1. Building Winelib DLLs
	We need the .spec file, I know. But can we also
	use a .def file instead (without relay support,
	of course). My understanding is that the extra
	information in the .spec file is needed only for
	relay debugging... If we are to ask people for
	extra work to create Winelib DLLs, I think we
	can get away with a .def file, but not with a
	.spec file (no tool support in Windows, etc.)

  2. Linking Winelib apps with Windows (PE) DLLs
	Is this possible? We will not be able to use
	the original import libs, we should be able
	to make do with a .def file. Is this supported
	by winebuild?

I am trying to understand this a bit better for
  (a) winegcc support for building DLLs
  (b) updating the Winelib docs
