Yeah, i use bugzilla for quite some time and from some components i still have
no idea what they mean, and some are never used at all:

*wine-console (i could guess, but i've never seen a bug with this component)
*directx and directx-d3d. (ok , directx is more than d3d, but we already have
components for dinput, dmusic etc. so why not remove directx)
*wine-files (no idea what it means, no files ever seen with this component)
*wine-gui (what does that mean?)
*wine-ipc(never seen a bug with that component)
*wine-multimedia (just change to winmm i'd say)
*wine-ports (?)
*wine-Rebar( could be moved to comctl32?)
*wine- resources( (never seen a bug with that component)
*wine-winelib ( (never seen a bug with that component))

My opininion is : please remove /change

>We need a component per dll. 

Yeah, common dlls not yet added that come in my mind are urlmon, mshtml, shlwapi
and advapi32.
