For me (at least) this is correct. Most of my application crashes. Even
classical games like Unreal Tournament crashes.

Read carefully. I said "Wine must work out-of-the-box in all cases where this
is possible". I didn't said "Wine must work out-of-the-box, enabling write
access to all hard drives to all programs, don't care about security at all,
etc.". If we can implement something without sacrificing minor security
(which is NX-protection issue for Wine) - good. But if not - workaround is
better than nothing.

I agree. Configurable option is great. Especialy if even newbie can use it by
