Thanks for your constructives criticisms.

I was thinking more about putting the wine path in a gconf key so that
you can specify it directly.
Trying to search the path using the methods you described can be used
then as a fallback when the key is not present or invalid.

What is "wine module code" ?
I tried grepping the wine source code for cedega and cxoffice but found nothing.
Please point me in the good direction.
