That makes sense only if _all_ the windowing stuff is done with Gtk#
(and we know this is not possible because of wndproc) and wine is only
used to provide the implementation for some user32 dll functions.
Basically, if some features are unrelated it's possible, but this is not
the case inside Windows.Froms as I understand it.
