Please keep the defaults. There is no reason to force people to update
their configuration file when there are workable defaults that we can

Ideally Wine should behave reasonably even with an empty configuration
file; this is not entirely possible because things like paths don't
have reasonable defaults, but forcing people to specify things that we
could guess is not user-friendly.
