On a technical sidenote, instead of hardcoding the wine path he should test 
some common wine locations, perhaps including cedega and 
crossover(/usr/local/bin/wine, ~/cxoffice/bin/wine /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine 
come to my mind). Or perhaps just parse the autorun.inf and then pass 
the .exe to the normal gnome / kde file opening methods to have whatever app 
is associated with the mime type run the app.

Otherwise I like the idea. I tried to so something like that a long time ago, 
but I failed.
