Yeah, that might be a good idea. Currently VMs are divided into a "Base" and
a "Extra" group, I can add a "Retired" group to hold the Win9x VMs. VMs in
this group wouldn't participate in the daily winetest run, wouldn't be used
for verification of wine-patches submissions and wouldn't be selected by default
when manually submitting a job. However, they would be available for selection
if you click "Show all VMs" button when submitting a job.
This will require some changes to the code, but nothing major. I'll look into
