Well, I've done about as much as I dared do without knowing exactly what
plans you have. After all, widl can *not* link to oleaut32 since widl is
not a Winelib app (and wasn't meant to be since someday we may want widl
to generate some of the .c and .h files used by Wine DLLs such as
oleaut32 at build time, instead of putting the generated files into
CVS). My original plan was to use stdio to write typelibs straight from
widl, not to use ICreateTypeLib.
