The idea (I think) is that with simple wrappers we can indeed use the
functions already in Wine.  The only thing holding back here is the problem
getting the Wine code and the Mono+Garbage Collector code to co-exist.  This
is because Wine has its own pthreads implementation which causes linking
problems for Mono because (although it's enough for the Wine code) it's
incomplete.  So the current position is that Wine can't use the standard
pthreads library, and Mono can't use a non-standard pthreads library.

I think.

Not at all.  I think it's important that everyone's clear on what each
solution would bring (problems, advantages and dependencies).
