A goal to keep in mind is that the conformance tests must be as
independent from Wine as possible. This means that, except for
wine/test.h of course, one should restrain from depending on
Wine-specific headers. So if we add additional helper functions this
essentially means they should be defined inwine/test.h.
Also I feel it would be nice to keep the tests independent from msvcrt,
especially on the Wine side (this to keep tests of low-level libraries
from depending on high-level libraries, i.e. msvcrt). But maybe not
everyone feels that way. That would mean we cannot depend on "%S"
(unless one of the lower level Wine libraries (crtdll?) supports
something like it too).
