While I agree with that sentiment, I would like to point out that it may 
be that WINE has an incorrect function definition that is backed up by 
an incorrect declaration in the .h file. Such a situation may result in 
compiling for wine with the wine headers working, as well as compiling 
for Windows with the windows headers, but missing the binary 
compatibility support goal.
