You are right, but please notice that with my latest patch, the same 
behavior is already achieved, by not "break"-ing at the end of 
VENDOR_MESA case if we didn't match one of ATI module names. This is the 
code that proceeds to be executed then:

            /* Card is probably one of the non-ATI cards which are also 
supported by Mesa.
             * Continue to the fallback behavior of VENDOR_WINE.
        case VENDOR_WINE:
            /* Default to generic Nvidia hardware based on the supported 
OpenGL extensions. The choice
             * for Nvidia was because the hardware and drivers they make 
are of good quality. This makes
             * them a good generic choice.
            gl_info->gl_vendor = VENDOR_NVIDIA;
                gl_info->gl_card = CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCEFX_5600;
            else if(WINE_D3D8_CAPABLE(gl_info))
                gl_info->gl_card = CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCE3;
            else if(WINE_D3D7_CAPABLE(gl_info))
                gl_info->gl_card = CARD_NVIDIA_GEFORCE;
            else if(WINE_D3D6_CAPABLE(gl_info))
                gl_info->gl_card = CARD_NVIDIA_RIVA_TNT;
                gl_info->gl_card = CARD_NVIDIA_RIVA_128;
