New winetricks 20080710: new verb ogg, fixes for firefox and divx. Schroedinger support!

Another week, another winetricks.

The big news is that Maarten now has a good
directshow filter for the Schroedinger codec,
and that it runs on Wine finally.
To see it in action, do
  rm winetricks
  bash codecdemo
then choose the options to install ogg and xvid;
then choose the option to play the example ogg dirac file Acadiane.ogg.
It should work (with some artifacts).

This is big news because Schroedinger is potentially
a good enough, free enough codec to achieve world domination
one of these days (once all the bugs are worked out).

It's also big news because now I owe Maarten a beer.
