Perhaps the way forward is to get mshtml working with Gecko's embedding
API, as you're doing, then switch shdocvw to use your implementation of
mshtml. That will give us full control over all the relevant OLE
interfaces, which are probably the things that will give us most trouble.

Cool! Looking forward to that. Once you get it going, post what you
have, and somebody can start working on shdocvw.
