Remember that the button is on a site we do not control, so it might be
a good idea to have it point to a static URL (not static page)
redirecting to the last known good in AppDB. Else, new versions of
either the application or Wine can change the status, and it would be
too much to ask the maintainers of the application website to change
their link every now and then, when a new version of either comes out.
