Am I correct in assuming (see above in thread) that in some
previous wine version it *was* possible to produce stand-alone
version? Any plans to make it possible (again)? Perhaps for
limited win32 functionality (graphics/GUI event handling only,
no device access, registry, etc.?)

Should one expect read/write access to memory-mapped files
to be faster if it is native Linux? (I must say I am impressed
by the fact that Win32 memory-mapped file access works as
well under wine as it does).
