I suppose a +winediag message might be appropriate for
some commonly-needed DLLs.  Probably there'd be
a table of which DLLs to warn for.

Nobody has hooked +winediag up to any flag-the-user system yet,
but that's what I had in mind in

I'm more focused on the idea of reducing the need for native
DLLs than making it easy to install them.  (Um, well, except
for winetricks, which seems good enough for the moment.)
