Yes, and Windows applications wasn't designed to 'see' Unix paths, whether
developed on Windows (like WinZip) or on Linux (winemine).

Uh... it's getting hotter here...

"... one corporate developer ..." hm... ;)

*If* we're at the very least worried about not having an existing z: drive
(like with winecfg), I suggest we make z: a default drive for / (or is it
already implemented??) So if there's already an existing z: symlink in
~/.wine/dosdevices, we use that, otherwise imply z: -> /
