[Wine] Easily changing directory where program files should be installed to by default?

Dear Wine users,

installing a Windows program the program’s installer should look up some
registry entry(?) (ProgramFiles [2]) what folder to use to install the
program files into. For Englisch installations this is normally `C:
\Program Files` in my home directory.

I have small space left in my home directory, so I would like to install
the program files in a different location, for example drive D: on a
different partition, by default. [2] says that this registry entry
cannot be changed using `winecfg` and `regedit` has to be used. It would
be awesome if this option could be added to `winecfg` for easy change.

Searching for »winecfg program files« in Bugzilla [3] I could not find a
report/request for this. Should I create a bug report?
