For doing things like InstallShields etc, it's common practice for
people to be given canned command lines, such as 

wine --dll ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n myprog.exe

basically because this is more convenient than altering the config file
for each combination. I guess

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine myprog.exe

is only slightly longer. 

Why must wines command line options be removed though? They are often
handy for testing things out.
