Are you kidding? Something tells me that you have no idea what you are talking

Right now all the test results that differ for win9x versions are marked
as broken(), i.e. Wine intentionally makes an effort to NOT replicate it.
So removing checks for (broken) results will change nothing.

People complaining that Wine no more cares about applications written for Win9x
should calm down, support for win9x apps and removing broken() statements from
tests has no any connection.
