Let's just say you're going to write an installer tester. How do you
define a failure? If you're  doing silent installers, do you just look
at the return value from the installer? If you installed app foo, and
the installer created file bar on Windows with a checksum of qux, but
not in Wine, does that count as a failure? How about if a registry key
is missing on Wine?
