That sounds nice, but I have got the feeling that it is not
only Wine's fault that the tests do not compile.  MinGW also
has its problems, and although new versions are definitely
better, they are arguably not perfect (dsound misses some
uuid features, urlmon not present).  Their import libraries
will probably be good enough for us one day, but it is not
our desk.  Or did I misunderstand something?
