For the reference, building wine-esync is quite easy now, since esync patches are included in Wine staging.

See: https://github.com/wine-staging/wine-staging/tree/master/patches/eventfd_synchronization

Example build script: https://gist.github.com/shmerl/baf82630e312c04e8910ca3081ab943f

The relevant part for applying the patches from staging:

./patchinstall.sh DESTDIR="$wine_src" eventfd_synchronization

I have a little tipple for inspiration. You could say, I improve with a little Wine.

If we could standardize WINE BOTTLE instead of "wine prefix" I would be so happy.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that's true then a WINE BOTTLE could be summed intuitively as app(s) in a bottle:

Edit: I would also accept Wine Container as a improvement on the iteration convention.
