What is the problem with running the whole app as a winelib app? You don't 
save any resources by having the application outside since you still have 
wine running, and you have the IPC overhead. You should still be able to use 
any Linux Library from inside a winelib app(Ok, I don't know how to do that 
with the C++ libraries like for file access to use Linux paths instead of 
Windows paths).
