you're right. as i said, that's an obvious option. 

but since linking directly would work on windows and since
the .def-mechanism with wine tools is supposed to support just that, and
since, for the purpose in question, i really don't see the point in
programming the dynamic loader manually, why not give it a try as well?

but basically you're right.
