Hmm, once I finish tackling the User's guide (Brian just sent me the
work he did on the Winecfg section that still needs to be polished), it
might be a very good idea to nearly rewrite the Winelib guide,
particularly the intro.  Is anyone else working on this at the moment,
or is it basically an open task?

I think I'll add it to my wiki page amongst the list of other general
usability tasks I have lined up.  I hope I get to them this summer ;)
