Hi - probably my first comment after lurking here for a few weeks. Is
there anything that a user type (I'm not a developer in any sense) can
do in this area? I run Windows and have lots of apps I want to run
under Wine. I've been entering info as I figue it out in the Wine bug
database, but so far that isn't helping me get my programs running.
I've wondered a number of times about installing Windows programs
under Windows and extracting all of the changed registry entries and
then reporting them somehow.

Is this possible? 

I'm not sure the apps I want to run are the ones you all would all
'common', but they are common to follks doing audio work. (recording,
writing, etc.) In the end would this be helpful?
