Then just tell your users to set that in winecfg, AFAIK winecfg allows app specific settings.
I'm sure your great guys but any such mechanism could be easily abuse by lazy programmers, also once 
it wasn't needed some sort of backwards compatibility may even be needed, I don't think it's a great 
idea. One simple solution would be to provide default settings for apps that have known problems, 
Alexandre hasn't ruled that out if it helps some apps to work out of the box.
