 Wow, interesting...
 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).

Kind regards,
