My concern is that this sort of thing needs to be planned correctly to
work in the long run, and it's not clear what the purpose of that
version check is. Is there a dependency that would make Wine require a
specific version?  What happens if you use a new Gecko with an old
Wine?  Can you make different versions coexist?

But then there's no sense in adding #ifdefs for it. Putting the
architecture in the request wouldn't be much harder, and would avoid
hardcoding in the client knowledge about what files are available on
the server.
