Shouldn't we be adding things that:

- Won't be obsolete in the future
- A majority of users actually need to use

I'm wondering if enough users want to configure those options to make it 
worthwhile to implement.  We should prioritize the functionality we need 
before we can say "use winecfg" to configure wine.  The rest of the features 
can require the user to use regedit or edit the config file by hand.

I agree that [Version] should be an app specific setting, it is a frequently 
used option.  Maybe we can roll version settings and the Dll settings tab 
together into an "Application" tab?
