           Summary: Wine-aware apps feature
           Product: Wine
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-kernel
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: maxdamage at aladin.ro

It should be implemented in Wine's Windows API (I don't mean Winelib, but 
Wine's compatibility layer with Windows) a hook or smth like that, so that 
future Wine-aware apps should be able to exchange information with Wine. That 
should be done in such a way to allow developers to release Wine-aware apps 
with little code added.
Such apps would be able to adapt to a Wine environment (though this means they 
should adapt to a buggy environment) and see what is Wine capable of (instead 
of Wine stubbing unimplemented functions, the app could resort to another 
approach). It will take more time until Wine becomes (completely) bug-free 
than until Wine-aware programs are released.
