I'm not sure I follow you. They can't be handled transparently on the
client side, the client has to check for console handles in functions
like ReadFile, and convert them to whatever is appropriate, whether
that means a server handle or a wineconsole handle. So it seems much
cleaner to always intercept console handles in the client, rather than
intercepting some of them and passing others straight through to the
server. Whether or not they turn out to be implemented in wineconsole
ultimately is a different issue IMO.
