wget usage in winetricks

I'll say upfront that, *thank you* for wine tricks!
Recently I encounted an interesting issue - I have a .wgetrc which sets always construct directory, and always time stamps, etc. It is equivalent to the command line option:
"-x, --force-directories force creation of directories" - while it is my personal preference to always know where I have downloaded stuff from, the usage of wget in winestricks probably should explicitly specify
"-nd, --no-directories don't create directories" and maybe other options
to make sure that wget is downloading stuff to where you want it to.
I thought of unsetting WGETRC, or setting WGETRC to some unknown place so that user/site-admin preferences are not loaded, but that's dangerous, because proxies, etc
are also set in wgetrc and if winetricks unset wgetrc, connectivity can break. So explicitly do -nd or even -O seems more sensible...
