great release! hehe

I said this on the forums too (http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-1279-Some_ideas.html), but there's another tool for WINE, also based on bash scripts, that could be integrated into POL... I'm talking about Winefix (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=533257), that (from the link) solves:

#1 - Applications breaking when not run from their base directory.
#2 - Wine's finicky handling of links (symlinks) to executables.
#3 - Desktop panels overlapping the screen of fullscreen applications when Wine is used with Compiz or Beryl, and other weirdness. => when the executable is run, it starts another windows manager (metacity, etc) and when the exec is closed, it opens compiz again
#4 - Choppy performance, or stuttering sound.
#5 - Applications changing the desktop resolution - and not changing it back.
#6 - The mysterious .lnk shortcuts and .msi extensions
#7 - If a program crashes, and wasn't executed from a terminal, no indication is given as to why.
#8 - AppDB integration!

I find that POL can use most if not all of these things to further increase performance of apps in WINE... I use both POL and Winefix under Ubuntu but, can these things be better integrated somehow?
