Linux wasn't designed to run Windows applications either - these things are 
subject to change.

No, virtual drives are there because they're needed for native applications.

If it's too complex for *you* then nobody's asking *you* to implement it. It's 
needed for some uses of WINE, and we have at least one corporate developer 
and one individual developer who are willing to implement it. This pretty 
much guarantees something will be implemented whether it's beyond your 
capabilities or not. The only real question is what is the best *way* to 
implement it.
