OK.  Can you list the main Win32 API calls you'd like such
an app to use to retrieve information?

Also, isn't it annoying that native dxdiag always says
the graphics card is X Windows?  Why is that, and
should we change Wine so that the true card's info
is reported by native dxdiag?

Ah, but it's easy and fun :-)
Maybe they could throw in a shader test or something...
