I was thinking, there may come a day when we have our own check
(say, "GenuWineCheck") to see if we're running genuine Wine, i.e.
builtin dlls only. Something like the "tainted" check in the linux
kernel, that enables you to discriminate binary-only modules.

Because, in the end, who would want to support applications on
Wine with binary only dlls mixed in? ;-)
