I am aware that is runnable under Windows using Cygwin (I would like
to try it under SFU sometime... Probably at least Debian-Interix to
get a decent GCC version...) I'm just wondering if it can be applied
for purposes useful to the end-user there... (It would probably
require a few relatively minor changes to allow WOW64 to handle
Win32...) If it can help speed up development it might benefit Wine as
a whole.
