Naah, probably not an Explorer clone (unless we need a special one to support
Wine-specific features, that is, and even that could be done instead by asking
a well-established Explorer clone to support these Wine enhancements...)

We're talking about *system* parts, and the relatively widely used Winsock
OCX DEFINITELY falls under that category.
(together with several other important OCXes in windows/system/)

Yep, it's sort of an "enhancement", since the native Winsock OCX
should hopefully work with our own builtin Winsock DLL,
so no need to write something here and now.
(although it'd be cool to have it here and now, of course!)
However if this OCX does NOT work with our Winsock, then please yell
