That was a bit of laziness and is definitely fixable.  Worst case, it will 
require that I "re-implement" _open() & family within setupapi, in terms of 
CreateFile & family.  Presumably, just such code can be found in the msvcrt 
sources -- unless somebody knows some kernel32 place, or some more obscure 
place, where I could find similar functions (to _open, _close, _read, _write, 
& _lseek) already linked to setupapi?
