No, *implementing* the tests using ordinals, then switching to named 
is damage limitation in an imperfect world.  It separates our buggy 
MinGW implementation from the work of winetest.exe, resulting in 
improved testing throughput.

We're not trying to fix MinGW, just test Windows.

Indeed, but the issue is that what we have is a compilation *service* 
that uses an incomplete MinGW.  An architecture where a service 
breaks at "random" times in the future is bad/broken: the methodology 
is wrong and needs fixing.

Still, if people don't mind the tests going AWOL for ~60% of the time, 
that's fine.

I guess people don't, so that's OK
