POSIX shared memory between regular Linux and Wine processes?

Hi all,

I could not find documentation and/or a working example, but a couple of
"unfinished" discussions on the subject: Is it feasible / possible in
any way, shape or form to literally share memory between a regular Linux
process and a Wine process (on top of Linux) via POSIX shared memory? I
am specifically talking about the `shmat`, `shmctl`, `shmdt` and
`shmget` system calls. Has anyone around here ever done something like this?
