Perhaps this is a naive suggestion, but why don't you simply put 
versioning (and checking) in the wineserver protocol? IIUC, the issue is 
about handling (and failing gracefully if necessary) the situation where 
winelib applications talk to incompatible versions of wineserver, so this 
would seem to be the obvious "fix"?
