That is the case about ordinary users.

Actually, there are some reasons for power-users. One of them which hits
eme is the low emtpy space on mounted partitions. When I am installing
some big software I usually change the %temp% dir by editing
~/.wine/config to point it to the FS wich has enough free-space. When a
new disks and partitions on my machine are going in and out I need to do
While using "config" file is fine, it doesn't feel for me comfortable to
use "regedit". :-P

Or users may be using not an ordinary softw. or may be even developing /
debugging it inside the Wine, IMHO. I haven't been changing the %PATH%
dir too often, but there are some console win32 utilities, made by me and
such which have no installer. So, if I need to run them from the batch
file at wcmd, I basically need to modify %PATH%.
Again, this may be need by power-win32-users, who basically can't stand
the GUI of "regedit". :-P
PS maybe an alternative for the "winecfg" may be some cmd-line option like
the "/advanced" to make such functionality available to user at run-time?
