As this myth is floating around on this list since a long time I have
to repeat:

WineTools is not using a deprecated config file. It uses the regular
registry way since a long time.

If you use IEs4Linux you are actually using the overrides setup of
WineTools as they took it from us. This also means that you have the
most critisized *=native override included. We are working on this so
you will probably have this on IEs4Linux soon after we fixed that.
