Yeah, that's a good start. But I think it's better to avoid the
whole issue by just not using the work emulator that much. It
doesn't seem to matter that we say it's NOT an emulator. People
seem to remember something about an emulator... :(

We should try to position Wine as a (1) PE loader, and (2) toolkit.
Both are Good Things in geek culture (see ELF loader, and GTK/QT/wxWindows),
so hopefully we'll have fewer battles to fight.
