This is for processing data and the Windows "imposed" binaries (because
of libraries) are only the first part of the process: the bulk of
the treatment is afterwards on a POSIX node (actually a NetBSD one).

For sharing data with Windows (and MacOSX), a good work has been done,
on NetBSD by Reinoud Zandijk, for UDF support.

But this will impose to process data under Windows (in a VM) and, later,
when this is done, to retrieve the data in a shared storage to
process it afterwards. Since I have Windows nodes available (almost
just for this), it is not a problem and a VM will just take processors
time on a node (with NetBSD) that is already doing quite some work.

I would have liked to test piping the processes just invoking wine (for
console programs) as a part of the pipe, not writing huge amount of 
temporary data being a huge win...
