And that what I'm trying to get at as well. A test results page which is not red
(and probably with a huge number of blue markings).
Getting there is just like implementing the win32 api (chasing a running
target). Tests change all the time. And people who implement new features use of
course (?) winxp or higher to test.
Which brings me to anther question. When are we defaulting to winxp? The test
results look a bit better on xp than win2k. This doesn't mean of course we are
doing better (haven't looked at the todo_wine's in the tests).
