   On the other hand at least you would quickly notice that the function
is being used and that you should stub it out. Currently you would get
an error code and no message in the log so that you may not notice.
   What also bothers me is that the person implementing the xxxFromDisp
functions has an 80% chance of forgetting to update the Coerce function.

   So I'm in favor of uncommenting the calls in Coerce, and if these
cases are really being used then either we do a full-fledged
implementation or we write pseudo-stubs for these functions.

   Do we have a know app that crashes with this patch?
