For the near- and mid-term, we're probably going to continue using the custom compiler.

Alexandre doesn't want an approach that requires the custom compiler in upstream Wine, so we'll presumably eventually need another approach.  I think he basically wants to reduce the non-PE surface area far enough that it becomes feasible to manually write thunks at the PE/host interface.

I hope that answers your question.
