That's a per-user thing (wineserver was run by your user, not as a
system daemon), but pre/postinst would run as root, not as your user.
It's not natural to do this.

I suppose that, in theory, the postinst could run a killall wineserver
to kill any running Wine sessions for every user on the system. But it
might be a violation of policy (not sure, could check), good taste, and
perhaps undesirable in other ways (if some user happened to be running
an important application he might not want killed just yet).

I don't think this is a good idea, but I can leave this open for a bit
in case anyone has a good argument for this.
