Phoronix might provide per-commit performance testing for Wine (Awesome!!!)

Hi Scott,

Yes we are looking at the possibility of pairing Phoromatic Tracker with 
Wine, such as we have been doing already with our daily Linux kernel 
benchmarks[1] and Ubuntu development packages[2].

Next week we should be hitting the first major milestone for the Windows 
support with a number of the test profiles becoming functionally 
equivalent to their Linux/BSD/OSX/OpenSolaris versions, so after that 
point I can look more closely at the Wine support. There are some Wine 
test profiles already, but I'm devising a way right now within the 
infrastructure to allow all of the Windows test profiles to optionally 
and transparently function against a Wine back-end.

[2] [relaunching in the coming 
days, there was a problem with the systems]
