I mean creating what wine calls a winelib app: it uses wine magic for 
startup (it ends up being a .so file run by the wine loader, and not a 
full native ELF application).

Dunno. As any DLL (especially the ones without hardware relationship) 
should be run in Wine, but YMMV (depending on the dependencies of the 
said DLL).
