I mostly agree. But...

1. MS eventually will drop support for NT4 someday (as they did for Win95)
and it's better IMO to have it mind now than try to catch up later.

2. What to do with GlobalGetAtomName on short buffer and GlobalDeleteAtom
tests which behave differently under different Windows implementations?
Drop them altogether?
