Already done work is grayed-out or simply removed from the janitorial

Also take note (François? Any perl hacker?) that the method used to find
the cross-calls (winapi_check) is not 100% proof. There are some valid C
statements which contain a cross-call which are not found. Look at
dlls/lzexpand/lzexpand_main.c GetExpandedNameW:

INT WINAPI GetExpandedNameW( LPWSTR in, LPWSTR out )
    INT ret;
    DWORD len = WideCharToMultiByte( CP_ACP, 0, in, -1, NULL, 0, NULL,
    char *xin = HeapAlloc( GetProcessHeap(), 0, len );
    char *xout = HeapAlloc( GetProcessHeap(), 0, len+3 );
    WideCharToMultiByte( CP_ACP, 0, in, -1, xin, len, NULL, NULL );
    if ((ret = GetExpandedNameA( xin, xout )) > 0)
        MultiByteToWideChar( CP_ACP, 0, xout, -1, out, strlenW(in)+4 );
    HeapFree( GetProcessHeap(), 0, xin );
    HeapFree( GetProcessHeap(), 0, xout );
    return ret;

The A call is between parenthesis and winapi_check can't find it.
winapi_check would need to be modified to find those, as I'm sure that's
not the only one in the whole tree.
