That doesn't solve the capacity problem (which was a real one the last
time this discussion occured, and is the reason why the address is not
in wine.inf).

Newman wasn't very fond of hosting it on winehq either. Sourceforge
looked like the best place regarding capacity, but the automatic
download part is a problem with it (unless we put it on our webspace
over there, but I'm not sure if it'd be Ok with their TOS).
