Let me try: option 1 is not about wineprefixes, it's a a mid-way solution between keeping a wineprefix per application and having one wine prefix for all applications (as done by bare Winecfg). So:
- just take the set of settings managed by winecfg (a subset of the whole registry, right?),
- winecfg UI allows the user to specify that the current settings are specific to a certain app (identified by path name),
- keep these settings in the registry (.../wine/winecfg/app1/...)
- at launch time, the launcher checks whether the app has a specific set of winecfg settings, if so, changes the corresponding parts of the registry, and only then launches the app.
