Wine is not an emulator.  No emulation is going on anyway.

We would, I think, like to move wineserver into the kernel
sometime.  It's been discussed before.  Linus is not
opposed to having native support for win32 system calls.
A fellow at Redhat wrote a kernel module for wine a number
of years ago, but it just wasn't time yet.

For a related BSD thingy, see
That project was still going as of 2006, I think, but didn't
get terribly far.
