This caught my attention.   If Paint.NET uses lots of Win32 calls,
but can be made to run on Mono on Windows, then it would
be interesting to see if it ran on Mono on Wine.
That could open up a lot of doors.

Wine's gdiplus is becoming much more complete lately,
so this might not be as crazy at it sounds.
