No if you use normal *NIX tools (tar, gzip, bzip, etc) that can archive / extract directories, files, symlinks.

The only thing you forgetting are desktop & menu links. You'll need ~/.config/menus and ~/.local dirs as well. The Wine relevant parts that is.

No, there are already lots of tools for that. No need to invent another wheel.
