Script to install wine and run PortableApps

There have been other discussions about the idea in the suggestions section.
Just to clear up any confusion, PortableApps is open source software for Windows, installed on a usb stick (ordinary FAT32 partition) in Windows. The USB stick can also house Puppy. Most of the applications in the PortableApps Suite run flawlessly in wine. see here:
This would integrate two open source products, and give people that already use PortableApps a consistent set of programs across OSes.
