I wonder if i could get a ELF with some plain hardcoded Windows syscall (an equivalent of OutputDebugString("Hello ELF world!");) running, just as a proof of concept.
However, perhaps fully functional 32->64 bit bridges in /lib32 (or /bin32 ?) would be more useful for start. There is some prebuilt Cygwin software around, which is of course 32 bit and closed source (Perforce client is an example).
