At first I thought that Wine should have set it by default (just as mentioned
in a recent wine-devel mail), but you're right, I'd say we should only set it
once Wine is able to cover a significant amount of IE functionality (i.e.
we do have a usefully working browser). Which might just as well be never...
The risk of programs failing due to discovering our IE version key and then
unsuccessfully and *silently* trying to use our horribly incomplete IE
functionality is a lot worse than not having the IE key and thus programs
usually telling the user that IE is not available and that he should install
