I was just proposing to remove it to see how many people would really
need it. If it's used it won't be removed, if nobody objects it means
it's just a choice too many.

I guess it's safe to keep it.

Nas however doesn't seem to be really used, so I'm thinking of either
removing it or disabling it in winecfg. Most distributions include wine
with all drivers, and I personally think it's not wise to have 30
seconds delay in winecfg.
