I think it's been poked at a bit, and ought to be doable.
It's probably a month or so's concentrated work by

it's always risky to get hooked on MS code that could
be withdrawn or made incompatible with Wine; better
to spend the effort getting the Mono route working first,
especially since it looks like that's really close.
If you want to try it, here's a shell script that installs
mono and sets up the registry keys needed for Wine to use it
for .net programs:
