If we just let that "feature" die a quiet death, it would encourage 
people to use Wine with builtin dlls, test them more, encourage bug 
reporting and development of Wine code.

People would moan and complain, but in the end Wine and Wine users would 
be better off, as they would no longer depend on anything but Wine to 
run their Windows software.
