This TODO item has nothing to do with running services under Wine.
What this is instead is a real Win32 service for Windows. The purpose
of this service is to help us automate the running of our conformance
test suite under Windows. It's operation should be very simple: once
installed, it has to poll (say every 1h) a location on to
determine when new tests are available. When they are, it has to
download one executable (winetest.exe), and run it (winetest.exe -b).
That's it. This way, people that want to help us test, can simply
install this service, and go by their business.

Needless to say, we need a volunteer for this... No Unix experience
required, this is purely a Win32 little app. Nice way to get started :)
