Why in Wine User Guide? Ideally, users should not have to deal with CVS
at all. The *only* reason this is so it's that Wine is very immature,
and changes quickly. But once we reach a stable release, this should
hopefully change a little. When I open the user guide, I want it to small, 
and to the point -- it has to tell me the absolute minimum that I need to 
know to run the thing. Note: ideally, it should be so easy, and intuitive
to run Wine, that we should not need a Wine User Guide!

It will get done, give people a day, or two to comment on it. I'll
do it if need be, don't worry. But the point is well taken: summarizing
the results of such threads is very imporantant, as otherwise we loose
a lot of the good stuff hidden in the middle of long emails. This is
the very reason I sent in my proposal for the menu, as it was a kind
of summarization of the discussions we had around here.
