	OK, I already have the main if not only apps that I used to use 
Wine for (topo map software for GPSs), installed and running better under 
XP in VirtualBox. And I can get along fine without skype and adobe.

	But I do have a lot of data, especially waypoints, routes, and 
trails, in my .wine. Is there a good way to salvage that data before I 
scrub first Wine and then other 32-bit things?
