So what would each one mean? I looked in the documentation on, but cannot find 
any details.

Let me get this straight: dll overrides specificy whether you want to 
use the windows dll or wine dll, right? So, when you put it on "", this 
is essentially the same as leaving the dll override out?

And how is "native" different from "native, builtin"? Will Wine refuse 
to load the dll at all, when it's configured to use a native dll and it 
cannot find one?

And do you really think the user should be troubled by having these 5 
options? After all, we wanted to keep winecfg simple, not complete, right?
