We achieve this by cheating.  On NFS we have a directory student_wine.  Each 
user has a symbolic link .wine in their home dir which points to the 
student_wine dir.  Any apps show up for any user, eg to run one application, 
the KDE menu item contains 
Exec=wine /home/MAUD/ooo/student_wine/drive_c/Program\\ 
Files/Focus-ES/KS3Physics/KS3P.exe
