No, that is not possible without executing a wrapper first (which might
be the same program of course).  I tried it but it is too much trouble.

Given that Windows has no process hierarchy (i.e. there are no
parent-child relationship) you can't map Unix semantix one to one to
Windows.  If you want to do that you will soon end up with something
very similar to Cygwin.
