What I and the other Ubuntu UI people would really like to see is the
ability to uninstall Wine programs from within gnome-app-install (The
Gnome applet the user interacts with after selecting

The UI is a fairly intuitive step - just add a "Windows Applications"
category and list the installed Wine apps on the right.  Once that's
done, we don't need a special Wine program for uninstalling anymore,
since we can expand the functionality in a similar place where the user
could reasonably expects to find it.

As for what you'll need to do this done, uninstalling applications from
the command line isn't yet supported, though I believe someone else is
working on that through reg.exe.
