I think we need a well defined notion of 'boot'

What about this: on server startup, we do this:

   if (wine_need_reboot())

The thing is:
  1. dead simple
  2. atomic, avoids races
  3. fast

Surely I may be missing something, but what's wrong with the above?
(mind you, I know nothing about the server, but still... :))
