Last time I asked about this, I got the impression that
there was some hope but nobody was working on it.
And I think it would require linking something statically
into the program, too, so if you're trying to foist winelib
shared objects onto an unsuspecting Big App, you're
probably going to be out of luck even if this gets worked on.

What application did you have in mind?
