Wine on Windows is getting to be a FAQ by now :-)

Many people have tried running Wine under Cygwin. Mostly it's an
achievement just to get it to compile and run. (Then there's
interesting little gotchas like when it edits the registry of the host
Windows box rather than the Wine instance ...)

Possibly a detailed wiki page on this should be compiled (though not
by me) and kept updated.
