I think writing (COM) tests is a great idea.
I have 'hit' a few bumps in the road of wine & COM in the past few weeks 
and I would appreciate it if I can help with writing (specific) 

It would be great to have a small 'com test framework' & sample code to 
base specific tests upon. I'm wondering though if all can be build 
without problems : I'm used to VC6, but it would be better if things can 
be (cross) build with mingw and/or gcc + with winelib.

Also generating proxy/stub code (without using midl) might be a problem 
at this point.
