The Gecko and Mono directories are being updated by a script that runs
in a non-root account. I guess I could make parts of /opt/wine owned by
the account this script runs under for my machines but I'm not very fond
of that. It would also mean that wt-bot  requires one to set up
/opt/wine is this special way.
