I think those should be handled by a MyDocuments shell folder, which should 
work with both shfldr_fs and shfldr_unixfs, whatever the user selected. So we 
would have multiple instances of the MyDocuments shell folder with different 
names (like Home, DVD Drive, ...) and different target directories 
(like /home/foobar or /cdrom), configured with winecfg (or perhaps read from 
the gnome config).
