Except you don't need winecfg for that you can run:
wine explorer /desktop,program,1024x768 program.exe

But all that aside, all changes that winecfg is doing are registry only 
changes. IMHO Wine doesn't need yet another program to writes something into 
registry. There are already two: regedit and reg.
