Ok.  I agree with that thought, but riched20.dll has different 
functionality based upon different versions of Windows.  Thus riched20 
functions will vary based upon the version of Windows we are trying to 

As I stated, I run dOOm II, which basically is a Windows95 First Person 
Shooter.  There are other old games like this that I feel that Wine 
should support because this functionality is going away with Microsoft 
Windows.  Windows 3.1/3.11 is already gone, for the most part.  Thus, 
like Damjan said, the tests are there and have been proven.  I agree 
that no new Windows9x tests should be added, except where needed, to the 
existing codebase.
