I need to cross a process boundary.  There is per-process storage in 
rpcrt4 that I don't want shared during my tests.  Single-process RPC's 
are worthy of their own test, however; I probably ought to test both 

BTW, this is somewhat off-topic, but sometimes the winsock test hangs 
for me after "make testclean"; ctrl-c and re-running "make test" always 
works, so I wonder if perhaps there is a race condition tickled by the 
make processing?  Next time (if there is one) that I encounter this, 
I'll attach a debugger and tell you what I see.
