What I mean is that when someone tries to install a program, wine would first check with the app database to see if there is an entry on it, and what its current ranking is for usability. Then it could possibly warn the user at maybe a self defined level (i.e. silver or lower, bronze or lower).

the ratings on the AppDB are subjective and can vary wildly, an app might be garbage to one user due to bad video drivers or bad support for a certain soundcard but the same could be Platinum for another.
