Winetricks is a simple script that adds a few mssing things to wine, e.g.
it's how most people install ms dlls or .net on wine. It also provides a
simple commandline way to change a few settings.  For instance, winetricks
vd=1024x768 sets a 1024x768 virtual desktop... it'd be nice if one could
instead do winecfg vd=1024x768 or something like that.

Dear Dan,

I agree that it would be nice to have a command-line interface for wine
settings cause I have run into situations that I have to configure wine
before going into X. So is it possible to first group/rearrange winecfg
functions into certain libraries and then let the GUI (control panel) and
the CLI all interact with the corresponding libraries?

About winetricks, I do not know much about it. What exactly do you mean by
"winetricks settings"?
