Well, Wine doesn't use a config file anymore by default, but still
uses a config file if you put one there. This is what I'm still doing.

I think in the long term, when the little winecfg app works, that
we'll just use it to set up Wine, but at this time I believe you still
need config to make any settings, or you'd have to do them all at the
command line which is not practical at all.

Just my understand. Not guaranteed at all.
