You might be able to use some tricks...
Something that allows you to start a central session in which you run
wine, with the user-visible Wine executable set to run Wine in that
session, passing the correct DISPLAY, etc might be possible... It will
be bad for security...
GNU screen might be able to do that... If a user connects, SSH in as
the Wine user, check if the screen exists, if it exists, run Wine in
it (after setting DISPLAY), if not create it and run Wine in it....
Wine should probably be ran in background that the user can disconnect
from the screen that a next user can use it...
I have not used Screen yet, but this seems like a decent use for it....
Note: The potential method described here are theoretical and was not
tested. It is probably VERY bad for security and stability....
