That is true Dan.

Winetricks don't modify or patch Wine's code.  However, the Wine project 
cannot support winetricks or any other third party add-on.  POL patches 
wine code with patches that have not been approved by the Wine Project 
and other changes.  Winebottler (a product for the Mac operating system) 
pulled in native dlls and such.  Don't know about WineSkin, but it is 
also a product for the Mac Operating System.

Again, the question is, why does the original poster want/desire to use 
a product that we don't support and has been reported to have little or 
no support in the past?
