Lots of people have thought about the inherently bad and wrong idea of
running Wine on Windows ;-)


Main problems:

1. It doesn't even compile yet.
2. Even if it did, apparently the Wine program launcher won't run on
Windows (I don't understand why, but apparently this is the case), so
programs won't run.

So the main purpose at the moment is (a) spotting and clearing
gratuitous Linuxisms in the code (b) sheer perversity.

I'm actually compiling it (in TinyXP in a VirtualBox) right now ;-)

- d.
