Only MIDL-generated RPC client code is likely to use NdrClientCall2
directly. MIDL-generated code is 1) predictable, 2) plenty of. And if I
remember right, the CLIENT_CALL_RETURN is going to be used by client code
for remote procedure calls that has a return value. So I'd say this is
both good enough and desirable (Greg can probably easily come up with an
example?)... of course, we'd eventually have to finish widl and then we
could generate RPC client code with it instead, but still...
