I in no way mean to second guess your work but I checked out the diff
for the most recent commit for how winetricks handled FF3.  It seems
all it does is download it and install it, no "tricks".  Do we want
winetricks to become a generic application installer?  I thoughts its
main purpose was to perform some non-obvious tricks to get difficult
things to install.
