WONTFIX is not TODO, it is DONE :-) I don't want to
use TODO for this, because it will show up as

Arguable. IMO to retrieve the same information from
diffs - you need to visit:
test1.win95.wine - TODOs
test1.win98.wine - TODOs
test1.nt4.wine - TODOs
test1.w2k.wine - TODOs
In many of these files you need to filter hundreds of
lines of code to correspond the check and its output.
This holds true even for checks which work in the same
way on different Windows platforms, have no TODO and
WONTFIX attributes, e.g. for 99.9% checks.
How much lines the explicit check with all these
attributes will take? 2 additional lines in the worst
case, nothing - in 99.9% of cases.
