Then they need to learn to interpret them correctly.

Their problem. If they refuse to implement Wine in their enterprise
solutions because Wine's test suites produces ERRs, this is their
problem, not ours.

I'd also argue against using Wine at enterprise level. Crossover would
probably be a better solution when it comes to businesses, with paid
tech support and a more business-oriented user interface.
