This looks like an interesting idea you have Bodo. "autoexec.wine" would
be useful.

In the case of MS-WinNT and beyond MS have gone for the enviroment
variable settings in
the "System" section of control pannel.

How about adding a section to the Wine "config" file to support this
modern way of working?

For example:

[Environment Variables]
;System wide Wine specific environment variables useful for all apps
"INCLUDE" = "d:\\vs\\vc98\\include;d:\\vs\\common\\msdev98\\include"
"LIB" = "d:\\vs\\vc98\\lib"
"MYENV" = "123467890"

This would improve things I believe.
