Yes, the winetests.exe should contain the compiled test
binaries as well.

Right, I did not realize. To make it clearer, maybe we should
control the columns manually, rather than dinamically. We
know what we expect, and an empty column will also give an
indication of what tests we're missing.

That's a good question. Maybe number of errors? Number of
tests we received? I dunno...

Right, we are on same wavelenght. It's just that I find the
output a bit too heavy, with the 3 numbers in there. A minor
point though. But having less in the cells will also make them
smaller, and we can fit more on the screen. This will be even
better when most of them are green :)

For sure. The two efforts are very much complementary, and
we should poll our efforts. winetests will handle just the
client part, so if you need the output in a different format,
just say so.
