We could do this in wine itself (or wineserver ?).
1- Add a registry key that points to the wine source dir
2- If the key doesnt exist, tell the user to locate winedefault.reg and
run regedit.
3- Check the timestamp key.

It makes me wonder why regededit does not verify the format of the
registry files it processes. This morning I gave it a bash script to
import and it did not react.
We can do this check that way :
- if a parameter is given, try to print results into the console.
- if not, we are in gui mode, then we can msgbox it or something else.
