We do need this for winecfg. If you want to setup virtual drive you do
want to see the full unix fs. Winecfg needs to have to unix paths.
Putting conversion code in winecfg was not really acceptable, an
extension to was.

This extension will become even more valuable because we want winecfg
(or wine in particular) to start without having any virtual drive.
People might have removed all drives (with winecfg).
