Hmmm, I followed usual windows proceedings, e.g. the applet is not actually a 
part of the control panel program itself, it's a .CPL.

Well, cpls are basically DLLs that export a function -> CPlApplet -> so (based 
on Dan Kegel's advice) i put them in dlls. 
They're not *programs* strictly speaking.

Hmm, I could use more feedback on that one.

control.exe opens cpls just fine; I only extended winecfg to make it suitable 
for being launched from within a cpl to perform only the particular task.
