I think the existing wine/programs/control should display the
enumerated applets but I've never really played with it. In ReactOS we
wrote a version of control.exe more enhanced version that did as you
suggested, creating a listview with item description and name and I
think it was rejected before because Alexandre preferred implementing
the namespace properly.

As for embedding the pseudo-control panel window in the X11 window,
here is the patch in question

I don't know how Alexandre feels about this either as he did not merge
it in to Winehq. Perhaps he wants to do it some other way...
