Looking for information on implemented API's in wine

Hmm. I did intend to use a database, specifically MySQL was my thinking.
What I hoped was there would be a web interface to query the database and so
everyone would not have to have MySQL to use it. Of course it needs to be
hosted somewhere but I figured I'd cross that bridge when it became a
problem. :) The move from flat file to SQL could be done with one
'mysqlimport command so right now I'll focus on gathering the information
and placing it in a flat file. The question then will be how to query it,
but I suppose it's best to deal with one problem at a time.
