Bug Description

Binary package hint: wine

Wine could use a standard drive letter (perhaps X:\) to point towards virtual CDs that the user has mounted, generally by right clicking a .iso file and (in Intrepid) selecting "Open with Archive Mounter".

Currently, these are stored in ~/.gvfs/ when using the Gnome archive mounter, though it would be nice to have a cross-desktop way of doing this, or at least symlinking to it.

Wine should provide a letter symlink that points to the latest of these drives to be mounted. This way we can handle the case where a user mounts more than a single drive, generally when multi-CD installs are done (in which case unmounting the original might not work well due to open files).
