maybe it is a good idea to seperate the installation rating from how well the 
program runs. I often had problems to install apps that run perfectly if you 
get past the installer ;-). just my 2 cents ...

that's a very good idea and i think the rating system in general should be 
linked to a wine version otherwise it's relatively useless. I always read the 
comments to figure out wether the (hopefully good ;-) rating of an app maybe 
is based on a wine version from 2001.
