At that point the only real option is keeping a list of blacklisted
video drivers (which some applications actually sort of do), but I'm
not sure we really want to go there. I do think we should investigate
native failures, and fix them if possible, but if tests fail because
eg. vmware has a broken d3d implementation, I think the test is
essentially doing what it should do.
