I *knew* that it'd receive this reply ! ;-\

I've also been thinking about doing it semi-dynamically after a call to
GetVersion*(), but I was a bit unsure about it.
Should we do it like that ?

Note that these registry keys are a *global* thing (wineserver !), whereas
the version value returned depends on the wine *instance* ("smart" detection
algorithm). This could spell trouble...
