That's not entirely true -- a Windows-based keylogger wouldn't really work with
Wine -- you'd need X-specific code for that. I reckon talking to user-accessible
UNIX sockets would probably also be out of the question. But anything that
involves snooping around the filesystem would probably work, but only if it
knows where to look (z: is mapped to / by default) inside a Wine environment.

Kind regards,
