Hello developers,
I find wine lacks process managing feature. Why not set a public accessible IPC (unix socket or dbus) which can return wine and wine programs' status?

For example, people may use "wineserver --list" to list all running wine and wine programs:
Code:
PID in unix   WINEPREFIX    wine binary file               WINEARCH        windows command
1233             ~/.wine           /usr/bin/wineserver          win32         -
1234            ~/.wine           /usr/bin/wine                   win32       notepad.exe c:\xxxxx.txt
12344          ~/wine-foo        /usr/bin/wineserver         win64       -
12345          ~/wine-foo       /usr/bin/wine                 win64       foo.exe

And users use "wineserver --kill-prefix ~/.wine" to kill (SIGTERM or SIGKILL) a bunch of processes.

Wine programs often freeze. Or programs seems to be exited but actually not (process still there), causing wineserver or explorer.exe or service.exe refuse to quit.
I believe users need that feature.

Feel free to open a feature request ticket, I guess?

I also agree that it would be a nice to have feature when wine behaves unexpectedly.

Its not critical because its possible to manually kill the associated sub processes using -7 or -9 signals for the then defunct processes.

A feature like this would make it a lot easier for users to cleanup/recover in some cases where wineserver was killed and there are still processes left open.
