I don't see why it would be any different than running under
Windows. If the app supports environment variables in its .ini file
under Windows then it will support them under Wine, otherwise it
won't. I don't think we should magically expand things in .ini files.
Environment variables in the Wine config file itself are supported, as
long as you use the Windows syntax.
