For Stefan (and some others who tried 1.0) I believe it worked on a PLAIN wine config without any registry settings. Where these options added after 1.0? (I think the subpixel one was) Perhaps these options should appear in winecfg or perhaps even be turned on by default and let users disable it in there if needed.
