I did something like that. I ran wineserver as root and a user wine app 
with same WINEPREFIX. The priorities work as expected and it was working 
for the mediocre app I had at the time. As Jeremy said, it is never the 
right way to do it programmatically.

I was working on a system where wine is installed by an "administrator" 
Linux user with some privileges and all users shared the same 
wineprefix. (Multi-user wine, a bit like the NT model.) I abandoned it 
because of the problem I had with multiple displays. And also my Linux 
IT knowledge is not up to it so I had problems with file access and stuff
