a new trick to add to winetricks

I'm not suggesting it's a *bug* in winetricks either. I'm saying it's a possible way to make it more robust. Since it's known that the native msi installer doesn't work, it seems reasonable to me that you'd set the override to use the builtin msi. This is similar to how it overrides the winver to win98 when installing mdac. It's a known "trick" to get it to install. How is this second guessing the user?

It's not a winetricks bug either, it doesn't set msi2 to native when
install msxml6, you did that. Winetricks doesn't try to second guess
the user, it does exactly what you tell it.

Reporting issues here is fine, Dan and I will see them here, and it
saves you trouble from registering on google code. Emailing me/Dan
directly is also fine.
