If you have to patch Wine, the program affected is NOT Platinum until, 
and only until, that patch is accepted and integrated into the Wine Code 
base.  At best, it is Gold.

Platinum:  All features work, without any modifications (patches and 
native dlls) when installed using the Windows installer.
Gold:  All features work, but Wine has to be modified (patches and/or 
native dlls)
