Yes, it's reasonable.  I think API-level compatibility is generally
more important to appilcations than timing-level compatibility.
I.o.w. function(args) -> result should be invariant across Windows and
Wine.  The time required to before function(args) yields result is
oftentimes not guaranteed in Windows, so a little fuzziness here is
often okay.
