Fantastic! What would rule even more is if this was not a conditional
compilation flag, but something that could be toggled at runtime. That way
you can have a single Wine installation that has both half-native winelib
apps and regular win32 binaries run at once. As it is, this patch is only
really useful for when you are distributing your own app-specific copy of
Wine, no?

Isn't that what wine_get_unix_file_name does?
