Feasible to use GUI support from ReactOS or WINE? (DOSX)

I didn't try yet. The Wine license is LGPL, so this most likely might allow to use them. If the Wine GDI32 totally relies upon KERNEL32 and DDRAW and doesn't make usage of any Unix APIs, it might be "almost" trivial to reuse it for HX. However, I'm afraid the size of hxrt will increase dramatically.

yes, but there is no further reimplementation planned at all.

MS-DOS forever!
