Do we really need a C program, a new mailing list, automated result
submission, generating HTML and now a database just so we have something
that says:

Test      | Result
kernel32  | Passed
msvcrt    | Passed
oleaut32  | Passed
dsound    | Passed

This all seems very much over-engineered to me. I'd really like to see
that kind of energy spent on fixing the tests so that they actually work
on Windows.
