What are you trying to accomplish?  For example, it
seems reasonable to assert that you must use the
builtin shell32 and shfolder.dll in combination, or
not at all, as Alexandre once suggested.  Or, in order
for Wine's shfolder.dll to succeed on older (native)
versions of shell32.dll, it seems reasonable to have
it call SHGetSpecialFolderPath* from SHGetFolderPath*,
as MS' version does.

In other words, why do you need the combination of
native shell32 and builtin shfolder.dll?
