This reminded me of ??2 at YAPAXI@Z. There's of ton like it in msvcrt and
msvcrt20. Can these really be handled just by parsing the Wine sources.
It seems like we would have to do quite a bit of type analysis
though I'm not sure how much: do the fields composing a structure
matter?. Probably not if it's a pointer to.

As a side note, for any solution that removes the need for spec files to
be useful to Winelib developpers, it absolutely has to support C++
(think MFC).

At least in the Winelib case it is not a strict requirement to match the
name mangling of MSVC. It just means you cannot call Winelib C++
libraries from native ones and vice-versa, which you currently cannot
