There are several bugs related to winecfg currently. Also, the Ubuntu
devs have some ideas on improvements to winecfg on their wiki, as well
as some ideas for command line access to winecfg, install/uninstall
and other functionality.

Ideally, there should be a winecfg meta-bug, like what we have for 1.0
and have the various enhancements grouped into relevant bugs. This
will allow attachments (like mockups to be added), as well as tracking
patches and ideas.

I'll start setting this up, and raising the Ubuntu comments as
enhancements, to better track things and get the usability and
scriptability of wine configuration and management up to where they
should be.

Does anyone know how to set up the meta bug/group to track these?
