Darwine was a decent stab at this but it's dead for a reason.  Cost/benefit is something you need to consider in any open source project.  The benefit, in terms of usefulness and performance, is basically not there while the cost, in terms of time, is exorbitant. -r
Just a short thank you for taking the time to state this.  Darwine died 
because Apple switched from the PowerPC to Intel platform and the need 
to integrate qemu and Wine was not there anymore.  No or very little ROI 
on just the time it would take to build/test/fix.  Several people have 
tried to breathe life back into the project only to realize why it was 
abandoned in the first place.
Respectfully submitted.
