You are right, it looks like a lot of the hard work is
done, which is a good thing :) Anyway, it now seems within
reach, at least to me. Thanks!

The problem is that without Managed, Desktop is meaningless.
Since we've moved the Managed flag to regedit, it makes no
sense to have a Desktop option which does nothing (since there
is no Desktop when Managed=N). So we either remove the
Desktop option, or we reintroduce Managed...

Since we know long term that Managed & Desktop will have to
go (not altogether, but from wine into a different program,
so Lionel will be happy :)) I suggest we remove Desktop so
we don't get our userbase used to stuff that will disappear
in the near future.
