I personally doesn't currently have that much time to work with it.

However, when I saw that not much happend despite
getting code from cabextrect under LGPL I thought
that perhaps people were having trouble on how
to create a new DLL in Wine and how to extract
the declarations from the Microsoft header without
creating a derived work. I have done it many
times before so thought why not do it...

So I very happy that somebody is intrested in continuing.

PS. If anybody have some other DLL that they wish to implement
but don't now how to do it, don't hesitate to ask me to
create a stub DLL with related headers.
