Actually, I already got something that works, just need to clean it up, add fixes
to automatically generate the necessary registry subkeys, and I'll send it in at some point.
I had to change winebrowser to not be a console app (although it still writes to stderr so
for all intents it kinda is) for the DDE stuff to work properly from ShellExecuteW, but it
still seems to work fine on the command line both when passing arguments and when using DDE with
wine start (except now if you just call winebrowser you have to wait 5 secs for it to print out
a usage as it tries to wait for a DDE, but I don't think there is any way to avoid a delay in seeing
the usage statement and both do DDE... unless we add some kind of extra command line parameter for
the DDE stuff I guess which I will look into).
