Win-test supports lots of contests.

For the new features. And to provide an encouragement to the authors
to continue supporting a fine product.

And the message wasn't that no new contests would be supported ever,
but that current development priorities are elsewhere. New features
and big re-writes introduce potential instability and it makes all
kind of sense to limit the scope of enhancements for a time whilst the
new bits are bedded in. Good software quality practice in action, once
more, from the WT developers.

But if the product doesn't meet your needs, you're free not to buy it of course.
