I don't like it. I think windowsx.h should not be used at all in Wine;
it only obfuscates things by making it harder to see what's really
going on. Besides, the FORWARD_* macros are not really meant to be
used to send messages, they are meant to help receiving messages, so I
don't think we should abuse them that way.
