The license of ReWind is X11, which means that it can be freely merged
from (although its copyright is now such that if someone do so without
permission from its authors, the ReWind project must be credited in the
Wine tree's license, which might have been a discouraging factor if any
original work were to happen in there). But this patch was not extracted
from ReWind, it was submitted to ReWind by me (not applied there either
though), then adapted to Wine by Juergen, and we both think it's OK to put
it into Wine.

No it doesn't, it has both UuidFromStringA and UuidFromStringW, take
another look. (They're even used by RpcBindingFromStringBindingA/W.)
