I don't know whether a modified graphic driver will capture EVERYTHING
he's trying to catch, but using Wine does not sound like the right
I'd use the same injection technique Wine uses to inject my own DLLs
that just forward everything on to native, and then use that to record
whatever is interesting to me. It sounds like what Wine is doing will
only hurt what Augustus is trying to do, not help.
There are also more "Traditional" ways to inject your code into a
process's import table.
