Several Wine addon packages and vendor packages do this and I think
the RPMs add some menus for builtin Winelib tools. You might want to
talk to the packagers about adding a menu for wineboot. You could do a
script with xmessage, kdialog or zenity like Winetricks does for a
GUI. In Bordeaux I've hardcoded a GUI for this but that may change in
the future. Doing it from a script and a dynamicly generated UI is
really the best method for this I think as it needs to live outside of
Wine, iterate all of the WINEPREFIXES and run wineboot for each one.

If you search wine-patches I proposed a bit of a hack solution for
missing a missing dll message box but Alexandre did not like it and
I've yet to come up with a better method.
