Well, launching winedbg instead of printing incomplete information is, 
IMHO, the best way to make something useful, and, as you said it, 
kernel32 is always builtin, as ntdll, and faultrep is too close of the 
system internals to be a totally winapiesque dll. After all, kernel32 
already exports a few wine_* functions.

To be honest, I'd really like to have an opinion about this patch before 
sending it and being silently rejected.
