The existing WineTestBot infrastructure is going to be replaced 
soonish... hopefully. So it's unlikely that we'll change the VMs now.

However we can certainly add some drives or even ISOs as we build the 
VMs of the new WineTestBot. You'd need to detail which configurations 
you're interested in.

One thing to keep in mind is we should strive to test as much as 
possible in as few configurations as possible, especially for the base 
VMs (those that run every single test patch). But at the same time it 
should be possible to isolate the effect of one configuration change.

I'm pretty sure others have things they'd like to see in the new 
WineTestBot. Where can we keep track of those?

Should we add a WineTestBot product to Bugzilla?
Should the product be coopted?
