Absolutely. I think a fundamental portion of the value
derived from someone investigating a topic is the context
gained by the person. Lots of times it is more important than
the code that is generated. If we don't get a full and
accurate dump (in the form of a post-mortem) we lose that
context, which means that a lot of the effort is wasted,
and moreover, the chances of someone continuing the work
are drastically diminished.

The end result is significant lower value for Wine. This is
why we should make it very clear from the beginning that we
expect a proper report at the end, nicely integrated in the
Wiki, so that others can learn and maybe continue the project
in the future.

In fact, I think that people should make notes on the Wiki
as they go along. I have doubts that we'll get a full report
at the very end otherwise.
