First off, thanks for the offer -- it's generous, and very
useful IMO. It certainly sounds interesting, and I would like to 
take a peak at the code. The big problem I have with WineSetupTk
it's that it's written in Tcl/Tk (I suppose). I don't know the 
language, and I don't care to learn it. Moreover, I think Wine 
should use itself for such tools, so we get to use all the nice 
controls we have <g>. One thing that I'd like to see is a 
programs/winesetup utility that's based on WineSetupTk, but
it's written in C, with the Win32 API & Controls.

Again, this may be a pipedream, I don't know how much effort
it would entail, but it's certainly something to think about.
It's a nice project for someone familiar with the Win32 API,
and little knowledge of Linux (if any) is required, so maybe
someone will set up to the task (hint, hint :)).

Now it's my turn: comments? flames? :)
