Perhaps it would have been useful to be reminded of this earlier, but if
what you're trying to do is to let a CoCreateInstance on a particular
CLSID (like IE) create an instance of a different but compatible CLSID
(like Mozilla), you could have just used the CoTreatAsClass()
functionality (if someone implemented the necessary CoGetTreatAsClass
call in CoGetClassObject, at least).
