No we won't.

I'm sure any game maker that uses GG doesn't care much about Linux or most gamers for that matter. Installing a root kit just to keep games from cheating opening your _whole system_ to any sort of an attack tells you something. Even if you give those game makers a mechanism to detect Wine they won't let their game to play on Wine anyway. In fear that some one might cheat more.

And if you'd read the original conversation you'd know there are lots of ways to detect Wine. Those who really want to - will use one of them.
