While I think this is a great idea for people who use their apps every
day, it still depends on having a bunch of testers.
It would be trivial to have your script killall wine after 5 minutes of
it sitting there waiting for you. My main concern was that a seg fault
doesn't necessarily mean that the app will terminate. Also, this only
checks that apps can launch, not that they are functional in any way. A
combination of both approaches would be helpful.
