Implementing this API would be extremely difficult. I'm not sure if there
is even any equivalent in the POSIX APIs. If not then I don't know what
we'd have to do - maybe bring back the service thread to respond to
wineserver requests to create remote threads.

What sort of program is this? The only use of CreateRemoteThread that I'm
aware of is for bots like Kore which inject themselves into games to
perform remote control.
