This is where I was (obviously) confused, all I can say
in my defence is that Winelib User's Guide in "Getting started"
implies that:

  You are done! Now you can start the application as ./notepad2

And there is no mention of script that runs ...so - so I was
expecting self-contained Linux binary.

I take it that means all winelib-ported apps are NOT true linux
binaries - but some half-breed between win32 binaries and Linux
binaries? What is then the advantage of porting (using winelib)
as opposed to running win32 binaries under wine?

Thank you very much for your help.
