(Request) EVE Launcher wine arguments and support for virtual desktops

Could we have our own launch arguments for wine as we got for WINEDEBUG and possibly virtual desktop support?

Things like Wine explorer \desktop creates a virtual desktop for the game. This makes the game from my experience more stable, also workaround the freeze on focus changes and more importantly it gets Gsync working and also stops messing with the desktop resolution.

To use multiple clients in that behavior you need to set a specific name for each Virtual Desktop it creates, having some launch arguments or even inject the profile name into the desktop name would really help with that =)

Info @
TLDR: wine explorer /desktop=name,1024x768 program.exe

Using 0x0 will create a fullscreen window, you can also set resolution in Winecfg.

The gold solution would be to have an option where we got our WINEDEBUG settings, like "Virtual Desktop" where you check it and it will automatically set the desktop name to the profile used to launch the client.
