Actually, another way you could do it is to use inf files and store
them in a database. We discussed something like this for the appdb.
Using inf's would be a cleaner method than hacking winecfg to automate
importing this data in to the registry and then everyone can use it.
I'd suggest if you know of an application thats buggy, needs the
version and dll information hard set, you try the inf route and submit
it to appdb if its an application listed there.
