The majority of Wine's options are settable via the registry and can be given 
app-specific overrides. So how about wineprefixcreate creates registry 
entries for specific apps that are known to need special settings?

Just need to be really really careful that an app needs the change, and that 
it's not due to a bug in Wine or something.
