Huh ?
These keys should *really* be there in case of a windows install,
if they aren't, then there's something very strange going on...

Also, even a windows install should really run winedefault.reg
stuff (witness Borland BDE key in winedefault.reg !).
I know, wineinstall currently doesn't seem to do this, but then I'd
say it's just not doing it right yet...
