Hi Marius,

currently there is no support for different installers.

There is a vague plan for a upcoming re-factoring
that also allows more kinds of installers.

But its not clear when implementation of that will start.

Making tox wine-aware could be a neat addition
to its general capabilities - could you report
a feature request on the bts?

best regards,
Ronny Pfannschmidt
