I had read much about that some win98 type features would not be supported 
only the NT types, and I'm wondering, why is then still the 
--winver win95 option is the default.
I would think that then the --winver nt40 should be the default option, and if 
somebody needs, then he should explicitly say that he wants win95.

But at least it would be nice if we could configure the winver from the 
~/.wine/config file.

Is there any reason not to do it?
