Something I forgot to say.  It is technically possible to make win32 application using X11 protocol.

Yes integration to provide X11 support to win32 applications is 100 times simple than trying to make HWMD out of X11.

There are a few weak points of course is that wine does not expose native X11 libs to win32 applications so network calls would be used to connect to the server instead of faster direct memory mapping.

Basically far cleaner and simpler solution is provide with with a wine version of MS Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Services_for_UNIX that is in fact just allowing the windows application to access native X11 libs and the like.

Now for now it will be just simple to proper port the application.
