And for it to be taken, I guess we would need to not only write the
extension, but a 'reference implementation' (I would guess in DRI / Mesa)
and get it approved by the FD.o people.

But ohsix's idea to use 'real' X windows 'overlaid' over the single Wine X
window would be the easiest idea to investigate (because it would not only
fixes this issue but also the mutiple windows with multiple pixel formats
problem that the former 'extension' solution does not).
