Um, I tried running
   wine control
and it started running, then exited silently, presumably
because no apps have installed any controllet.

Either we need to fix that doc, or we need to add
a controllet for wine itself, so the list is never empty,
or we need to make control.exe put up a dialog box
saying "no control panel thingies installed".
