I think the last time the subject came up, the consensus was that the 
existance of HKLM/Programs/Wine is the best way to check whether you are 
running on Wine.

A different matter (and one which I am not qualified to attest to) is 
whether it is smart for wine to be 100% win98 compatible in that regard, 
and whether it is smart on your program's side to do those tricks.

Hope this helps.
