For some reason I thought that by default wine isn't following symbolic links 
to directories, but that doesn't seem to be true any more. Is this option 
still available? Do we still have to consider this?

I would go on to extend winecfg then, to support setting symbolic links for 
the "Desktop" and the "My Documents" folders. And add a command line option 
to set reasonable defaults in a GUI-less mode to be called from 

Is it ok to rename winecfg's "Appearance" tab to "Desktop Integration" and put 
this stuff there?
