Hmm, the stub functions in usrmarshal.c was enough for me when I tried.
What stubs are missing?

And yeah, I know it causes a lot of warnings, but I thought that it
might be a reasonable tradeoff since it won't stay there forever.

Not all that close I'm afraid. I think it might be easiest to make widl
emit stubless (rpcrt4-interpreted bytecode) marshallers than the
old-fashioned inline marshallers (hardcoded function tables, which look
like a nightmare to generate), but wine's dlls/rpcrt4/ndr_stubless.c is
still just a stub... so the bytecode interpreter would have to be
implemented also (but of course that has to be done eventually anyway,
stubless proxies are better according to MS, so many apps will use
them). It'll probably take a few weeks for me at least, since the stuff
I do have works, and thus its priority is lower... but I can try if
you're willing to wait a bit.
