PlayOnLinux isn't mentioned by name, but referenced, and this link
shows it: http://wiki.winehq.org/ThirdPartyApplications

Exactly why we don't support it.

So it works? Great! If not, attach terminal output and explain the bug
clearly. Off hand, sounds like it was a bug in wininet.

We don't support it, so we don't know exactly what they do. I've never used it.
