I was struck at how willing people were to work on it at Wineconf;
I suspect that a call to arms will do it, so long as someone sticks
around to pay attention to the results.

Of course, the WPF is relatively flush, so we could offer some prizes
as well...

I was hoping to sound a cry for the use of winetest [1], but was
stymied by a lack of documentation around winetest.
