Killer-App idea: Stack protection

Hi all,

how about implementing the ideas from exec_shield (a linux kernel module
written by Ingo Molnar to automatically protect existing programs from
most buffer overflows) directly into Wine?

May be a dumb idea; I don't know too much about those deep internals of
Wine regarding stacks.
