MCI didn't go away, it still exists, so can write the tests and run them
on NT based systems and see what you need. The only need to run the tests
under win9x is when you have an application which doesn't work under NT,
and you need to make it work under Wine. In any case you need to debug
the app first, and not blindly rely on some mystic hidden win9x behaviour
which may not even exist.
