You may protect winehq from those reports, but there's still a problem:
the local user (e.g. me :-) can get confused by the output of
winetest on wine.

It's a minor thing, and the test results page for winehq that
documents all this stuff will help, but I still have the feeling
that winetest should disable the upload button and display a warning
when running on Wine.  And once that's been done, there's no harm
in setting the environment variable correctly so winetest actually
handles the todo_wine annotations correctly.
