About automatic configuration

As I'm working (a bit) on winecfg, I noticed the following line on the
Wine installation process should install and configure wine
But of course, winecfg also needs some automatic probing of at least
disks, since there is a "Autodetect me" button in Winecfg for that.
Also, Chris Morgan made a cool feature that autodetects your sound system.
I was thinking to write a DLL that would export some functions to
autodetect stuff... That DLL could then be called from both the
installation (or directly after the installation) to auto-setup both
sound and harddisks, and could later on be used from winecfg if
something ever changes.
Plz give me your opinion on my idea. Is this about what was meant by the
remark in the todo-list? Would there be any standards to follow for this
kind of functionality? Or should I just hack around a bit? Or is
something completely different intended / needed?
