If you don't have a program which crashes because of unimplemented API
(ie, tries to call 0xdeadbeef), I'm not sure it's worth it to just stub
the rest of the functions. Some stubs are adequate substitutes for a
real implementation, while others will make the application behave
strangely. It'll be difficult to discriminate between bad and don't care
stubs, while an unimplemented function is easy to come by and then
decide if only a stub is enough or not.
