Would you mind doing that?

xmessage output handles the case when the user launches wine via a
launcher of some sort where they would miss stdout.  Since we have no
launchers, then there are very few use cases where the user wouldn't
see stdout (only one I can think of is if they're using something like
xfce's verve command line plugin).
