 It isn't really, I've had a look at dlls/user32/msgbox.c in Wine sources
and adding a handler for WM_CHAR/WM_KEYDOWN there seems pretty
straightforward. Of course, a patch doing this would take some time to be
accepted into Wine (assuming it is accepted) and propagate into Debian from
there, but maybe you could use your own build of Wine in the meanwhile?

 We could use a custom wxMessageOutput object in lmi: from what I remember
you're somewhat allergic to wxLog, but wxMessageOutput is much more
straightforward and is really just a direct replacement for modal
wxMessageBox calls, so I hope this would be less controversial.

 But I believe adding the missing feature to Wine would be a better choice.
