Yeah, that would be neat.  I'd like to have a meta bug, say "Make OLE 
work", and then add all the applications that don't work as bugs under 
that meta bug.

I thought a checkbox might work too... a single click that somebody can 
set to show that the app works with builtin OLE or not.  Maybe that 
could add the app to the metabug somehow?

Well, kind of.  I want the app db to tell me all stuff that's not 
working with builtin ole32. (later possibly other dlls).

OK. I'm sure that Jon would help you out. This change would help to 
leverage the appdb for developers, not just for users.

I'm a bit worried that our users are content to use native Windows dlls, 
which doesn't help achieve Wine's goals.
