For Winelib sure that would be a good idea.

OK. For the record I see absolutely nothing wrong GNU C handles
__declspec(dll{import,export}) and just put useful information
in some aproprietely named section. After all you can always
strip the section if don't want it and BTW if why don't want
it why use __declspec(dll{import,export}) at all...
