Should that matter? Plenty of Win95 apps will work in WinXP. Sometimes better,
due to the improved functionality/bugfixes XP implicitly provides (I can't
say I know which of these features are handled by Wine, but theoretically..).
Why force it to Win95 mode when it'll work in WinXP?
The apps that don't work in a newer version than they were designed for are a
problem, but not one so easilly discovered or solved. I'd imagine most don't
have a problem with newer versions, so forcing them to use those older
versions for no reason will just end up hiding Wine bugs more than helping
