Yes, our Windows.Forms implementation relies on Wine. I believe that's 
the only way to run Windows .NET applications who go around the .NET 
API and p/Invoke a whole lot of win32 APIs. One could have a 'native' 
implementation but it would not run very many Windows .NET 
applications. I had heard of Wine efforts on MacOS though, I think.
