I believe Alexandre plans to have Wine configured via the registry eventually. 
Then it would probably make sense to have a C program that acted as a control
panel applet and did what WineSetupTk does, but in a dynamic fashion using the
registry APIs.  Until then I would expect a C version of WineSetupTk to be
rather ugly from having to deal with much text config parsing and manipulation.
