Actually, this makes sense for apps that install executables that are 
coincidently named like programs that Wine has, e.g. calc.exe or user.exe.

On a slightly related note, in CrossOver we force a whole bunch of DLLs 
to be builtin, like ole32, oleaut32, rpcrt4 and msi. Maybe we should do 
the same for Wine?
