Shouldn't Wine be fixed before it's removed? Isn't it kind of backwards to say
we need to have Wine run everything out of the box and to accomplish this were
going to remove a link to a user friendly tool that currently helps our users.

Then what? your going to have just as many, if not even more people on
IRC asking for
help who other wise wouldn't have had to do so.

Wine is easy for me, and I'm sure for yourself  to use and configure
but this is just not the case for a large number of people! Removing
WineTools is the worst thing this project could do at this time, as
its the *only* free GUI that makes a genuine attempt to help first
time users.
