May be a bad idea to have Winetools in the next SUSE release

Hmm, I have some kind of recommendation here.

What about winetools using ".winetools" as WINEPREFIX setting? 

This would make it possible to keep a ".wine" for the purists, and
".winetools" for the "just get things done" people.

Up to now winetools does not seem to honor a WINEPREFIX setting
(also a bug I think).

Ciao, Marcus
