Right-To-Left (RTL) languages and Wine

I've been in talks with a Hebrew translator for some time now and I'd 
like to have Wine being able to start doing more RTL stuff.

I'm looking for example at http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1158

If I run an English winmine.exe on an Arabic box (thanks to the testbot) 
the main window will shows as normal LTR window layout with the menu's 
left justified as well.

So eventhough the locale is set to Arabic it doesn't turn 'everything' 
into RTL.

If we don't change the resource files for the RTL languages, that same 
logic will give us LTR Wine applications or am I wrong here?
