My two cents:
You guys shouldn't even release 0.3.5 until *all* Winetests give the
same results as testing on WinXP/2003.
I've never understood why such critical/useful tests have always been
ignored -- I remember fixing a lot of the ntdll regressions (thousands
of them) and it took me less than a week. Mostly looking at Wine code
and looking for bugs in functions that were being tested.
