this won't be easily possible, because wine has no knowledge on what
currently exists on the terminal
the whole point of the proposal is:
- if the user launches a wine program from the shell, then wine controls
the terminal and we're fine
- in any other cases, we don't (easily) know. therefore,
wineconsole/user is forced
