Correct approach to deploy Wine applications

I'm currently working on bug 585 - "wine installation
process should install and configure wine
The first part of the work is done - wine
applications, like regedit are installed by Wine build

I wanted to ask you about correct approach to place
these applications to deploy them.

I think that applications can be called with full
path, with or without extention, names in different
cases. So I'm going to change wineinstall process to
create symbolic links in c:/windows/system32 e.g. for

regedit -> /usr/local/bin/wine -> /usr/local/bin/
regedit.exe -> /usr/local/bin/wine -> /usr/local/bin/

This fixes problems with full path and with using or
not using file extention, but how to handle
Regedit can be called as REGEDIT, RegEdit, Regedit,
regedit. Now multiply this on number of extentions
exe, EXE. This is without considering really fancy
cases, like "ReGeDiT".

Is there a way to handle this problem?
