It is not helpful since wineconsole is designed to work under ncurses.
Even if you do
DISPLAY= WINEDEBUG=-all wine wineconsole --backend=curses cmd |& head -n2
or even
DISPLAY= WINEDEBUG=-all wine cmd |& head -n2
you still get the message about X.

This makes impossible to run command line tools in scripts, which used to work.
