Thanks for your perspective. Is this largely because WINE is not an
emulator?  I would have thought it possible to have WINE itself compiled
as a 64 bit application (such that it can pick up and use 64 bit linux
libraries), but still represent itself as a 32 bit environment for the
windows binaries. But, you know way more about it than I do - if you say
that isn't possible, then I won't bother starting.
