Thanks guys.

It looks like the shell-script wrapper requires a script per executable. Is
this correct?

Gavin - I had heard (as mentioned by Jonathan) that the binfmt way can
conflict with WINE. Have you experienced this?

I also google:
chrisa at persephone:~/CS$ google hello.exe
-bash: google: command not found
chrisa at persephone:~/CS$

Doesn't seem to work for me ;)
