/me better won't reveal his feelings now :-\

I'm attaching the current implementation of programs/wineboot.
I removed all GUI code and made sure that it still works, but it's not
fully ready yet, I think (configuration settings, for example).
I always planned to finish it, but with 50 mails in my "reply" queue
and Linuxtag looming, the prospects for this are a bit grim at the moment...
Also, I feel that I'm still a bit unsure as to how exactly it should
be implemented:
- how exactly are we going to check for new "bootup" entries to be processed ?
- when exactly would it be run
- etc. etc.

In case someone wants to work on it, feel free.
Otherwise I'll continue to work on it when I've got a lot more free time,
i.e. in August/September.
