The winetests shell is comming along nicely, I don't think
it's worth dupicating effort. It will do all the decompression,
sending of results, cleanup.

The current matrix that you have is interesting. We should
include Wine as one of the Windows version. The numbers in
the cells are rather confusing though. I suggest the cells
be coloured green, yellow and red. The colour is based on
the following:
  -- green: all tests received passed
  -- yellow: some tests received failed
  -- red: all tests received failed

The yellow and red cells should be clickable and a popup
should detail the problems.

We will need to integrate your scripts with the new mailing
list. Please not that people may send results inlines in the
email, as text/plain attachments, or as encoded MIME attachments.
Ideally we should be able to extract them out of the email
regardless of how it was included/attached. For bonus points
we should gunzip/unzip them if they were compressed. :)

But all this is low priority because 99.99% of them will be
sent by winetests I suspect, so we know exactly how they will
be included.
