'Vanilla' is normally an expression to say that a program, tool, app
or game is unchanged, unmodified, fresh or just from the developers

I've observed this often on the internet so I guess that is the reason
why it isn't documented ;)
-You wouldn't tell someone what "in a nutshell" means, but that
doesn't make the expression obvious to everyone.^^

I saw the usage of that tern in: Modding: "vanilla Crysis
installation", coding/linux kernel work "vanilla 3.1 kernel" and of
course Wine :D
