There already is a versioning in the wineserver protocol; I believe the 
present version is 68 or 69. The problem lies in using an app compiled 
for another version than the installed wine libraries/server, and/or 
surviving upgrades in the installed wine libraries/server without 
recompiling the winelib app.
