Great idea, IMHO.

We might want to make sure there is no conflict whatsoever between a
certain point in time where it happens to work with Wine and a certain
point in time when *Wine* is considered "Gold" and thus the app is *supposed*
to work at that time, though.

But OTOH that "certification" would probably simply translate into a web page
where you can view which Wine version *exactly* with which Wine settings
*exactly* has been made to work, so there wouldn't be a conflict.
