The ICreateTypeLib2 interface is used to create the new-style MSFT typelibs.
The older ICreateTypeLib interface is used for the old-style typelibs. While
the newer interface also implements the older one, when you ask for the old
interface with CreateTypeLib() you get a completely different implementation.

I don't see why it necessarily follows that stdole32 wouldn't work as an MSFT
typelib, but the implementation of ICreateTypeInfo2 is badly incomplete in
places, and I would trust it to completely mess up any semi-complex type
library you attempt to create with it. Specifically, any type library that
involves functions or variables.
