I haven't seen anyone make something like that for Linux, but it seems like just symlinks and proper launch scripts would work fine.
Between distributions libraries often (used to?) differ, needing at
least a relink to work... (Within the same distribution, packages
ussually work fine...  And methods to get protable binaries exist...)

It shouldn't be affected by path, username, etc...

(On Picasa: it has a .wine under .google/picasa/3.0 with symlinks for
the Picasa EXEs (probably to save space). It seem to be using a
(potentially standard?) Wine 1.1.7)
