[PATCH] [RFC] Make drive C always a "Local disk"

Drive C: is not necessarily the truly central drive. I have seen Windows
installs that installed on D: and have C: as a permanently mounted network
share. To assume that drive C: is always what it is... is blasphemy.
However, Wine does make this assumption, and probably the patch would be
appropriate. Just throwing that out there. However, I have also seen wine
installs onto a network where the WINEPREFIX is a network share so that
multiple people can use the same program.
