The best way to build a portable binding is to base it on an XML or XHTML
GUI and use the browser as the front-end.

Will CLAW run in Win4Lin? Win4Lin will run apps like IE5.5, Office, and
Photoshop at basically full Windows speed within an X window.  Win4Lin does
not support Direct X.

If you make abso-smutely sure that it will run in Win4Lin, then you can
leverage your Windows-centric efforts to the linux world.  It would be nice
if Win4Lin would run in BSD, too, but that isnt supported.
