Well, we're still looking for someone who is willing to implement
the obsolete (as it's not possible to implement via wine any more) options
as automatic wine config file modifications of our wrapper script
tools/ via sed, awk, perl or other stuff in case
wine isn't running yet (so the config file can actually be modified). will become increasingly popular anyway, so it should really
support this.
