I know they declined an in-process wineserver due to difficulties blaming
the right component on a crash: is it the app or wine that's faulty?

I found no other relevant discussion on wine-devel since January 2010, when
searching for first 'share' and then 'server'.

Too bad if a fork is needed, couldn't the sharing be configurable?
