Yeah, I know the project.

The problem is that WINE does not support IE 6 or greater (the WINEdb
is quite cautionary on the point). Which means this is (sort of) hack,
which may or may not continue to work.

Since Magda's IE needs relate to her ability to earn a living, a
virtualized instance instance of Windows is probably more
fault-tolerant, and allows me to not drive across town at 11pm when
WINE fails to deliver. ;)

Great pointer, though! Thanks!
