Wine and Mono

.exe files are often associated with Wine so that it's easy for users to
double click a windows application and have it working like any native

Wouldn't it be possible for Wine to detect .Net application and run them
using mono (mono app.exe) instead of just failing ?

If that's not wanted, would it be at least possible to issue a message
to tell the user that the application he'is trying to run is a .Net
application and that he should try running it using mono ?

What are your opinions about the handling of .Net executables ?
