Yes, it would be one way to implement it (and arguably it's the right
way in an X environment, there's no reason for Wine to duplicate that
functionality). I'm not sure how well Xnest supports X extensions and
hardware acceleration, though that could probably be fixed. The other
problem is that it will cause us to create X windows on different
displays within the same hierarchy, and this doesn't work correctly at
this point. But it's something that will have to be fixed anyway.
