While this makes sense from a separation perspective, it will prove to
be very inconvenient in practice. For decent integration we need access
to the environment, and having wrapper over wrapper to do these things
is not convenient. 

Maybe the solution would be to have a winecore things that does the 
absolute minimum, and have a wine be a wrapper that handles environment, 
etc. IIRC there are other candidates for moving in such a beast, no?
