What do you mean? with a check for a "special" app_name. Or an 
auto-detection of the binary and delegation to (g)libc - popen? And 
bridge of Wine-std-I/O to Linux-std-I/O.

I thought about it a bit, The I/O bridging will have to be either done 
with threads, or with async I/O in Read/WriteFile and accept on the 
Linux side.
