this is also a possibility, but doesn't this create the need for even
more IPC? the big open issue is: how do the test results get back to
the actual test program? obviously there are many ways to do it; but
doesn't separating things like this just make it harder?
Actually, I was leaning towards the idea of having the test program
itself be both client and server... but AFAIK there is no
wine-compatible way to fork()..?
