Sure, ideally that would be better. My C isn't that great, but I know
AHK very well. Dan and I have discussed getting some cmd tests into
winehq, but until the infrastructure is in, it's hard for me to do
that. The tests I've added to Appinstall though should translate well
into some C testcases, with a few minor changes.
