Yes, we can't quite guess all this right, this is a job for
to standardize some setting so apps can easily get to that kind of info.
It's just stupid that apps (outside KDE/GNOME) need to have their own setup
dialogs, etc. And even more silly is that the user has to configure all
this crap so many times it's not even funny.

What about the stuff in win.ini/[mci extensions]. Is that used?
