It has, but in a small degree -- if win9x support regresses now, these 
existing few cases of testing win9x specifics won't do their job.

And how is the project going to get rid of win9x specifics in the 
winetest?  Some of them were being skip()ed, some broken() and some of 
them were left just as valid (eg. ERROR_NOT_LOGGED_ON).

You will you let them rot?

But I see the pluses too.  Now if I stuck upon some win9x-specifics, I can 
change WinAPI function without even needing a test case.  Because it won't 
be tested anyway, right? :)

I guess more patches are going to go through since<g>.
