For the types of reports (governmental) that these guys were discussing,
"These jobs were run on a random mixture of LINUX and WINNT51" (and
reading between the lines,
"which it would be hard to reproduce exactly") is far less strong than
"These jobs were run on WINNT51 machines" (and we could reproduce the
run exactly by
providing the same random number seeds).

I think that is their point. Knowing on which OpSys and Arch each one
ran is great
for "Audit", but not really for "Reproducibility" and certainly not for
reporting purposes,
even if they could prove their codes were *identical* on different OSes.
