In this case it's actually justified, I think (since this DLL is used
by many, many programs and the Wine implementation would be extremely small).
However since I think that we'll have many similar cases of non-Windows DLL
(and VxD!) rewrites in Wine (almost always for hardware interfacing),
should this be done in dlls/oem_drivers/ or so?
This might need Makefile structure changes, though.
I'd hate to see the main dlls/ directory polluted with dozens of vendor
