A small soft firm (microsoft) will send their lawers to happily
and readily roast you over coals if you try to touch their
"Signature-Store" technology.

What wine could do would be presenting a api that redirects / rewrites
the calls to openssl / or similar cert-proving software available
in the underlaying system.

So, it's no bug, but a non-implemented feature due to legal
concerns and no direct need so far.

I don't see how certificate store API would be any legally gray-er
than the rest of windows ABI, but I'm no lawyer.
