I'd do it like that. winecfg can make use of some good testing, so we
should "trick" people into using it...

Just try to make sure that people won't get the impression that WineTools is
simply a wine configuration tool, just like winecfg. It's a bit more than that,
with its extension package installation (MSI, ODBC, IE, ...)
and installation entries for common well-tested applications.
