Well, it isn't.  It's just we'd like to see some
identification on the data published on the webpage.
Moreover, the processing scripts are not prepared for
reports coming from Wine, which would lead to confusion.  It
wouldn't be hard to fix, though, the report contains this
information, but it's not presented to the reader.

So, just read the README in the source directory, create
(and keep up to date) those pesky files and give it a go.
But we'd rather not drown in unusable reports coming from
people running every executable in the Wine tree, and that's
the reason for not having defaults.  We used to, btw.

If I still miss your point, and you don't find it hopeless,
please try to explain the difficulty you experience once more.
