It also appears that implementing RpcTryExcept ... RpcExcept(expression)
... RpcEndExcept is next to impossible, from the looks of those macros.
Even RpcTryFinally ... RpcFinally ... RpcEndFinally would be difficult...
So we'd probably either have to strip/rewrite exception handling from MIDL
output or beef up WIDL, if no really clever guy can implement those
macros (I don't feel clever enough).

Anyway, Alexandre, what was your stance on putting MIDL-generated code
into Wine (pending WIDL getting good enough)?
