I hope you realize that a 64-bit Wine is not going to let you run
Win32 binaries, so it will only solve your problem if you have either
a Win64 version of your app, or a Winelib app. But as long as you are
aware of that, by all means go ahead, I don't think anybody else is
working on that at the moment.
