[PATCH] include: Allow making Wine Server requests from C++ code

We have an input processing system which requires us to directly send input
update information to the Wine Server. The existing helper methods don't
provide what we need.

Can you please elaborate why it will be a tough sell? The change provides
no sort of functional or behavioural change. It's just making the cast that
was already implicitly happening, explicit.
