Yes, I am aware of that.
This patch is the result of four weeks work (not only of me), spending
most of the time with debugging, as most of those stuff is pretty
undocumented by Microsoft. It's not possible to simply look at the
ReactOS CVS history to separate out patches for every small piece
of change. If you want me to send in it this way, this would take
me another week. I don't think, it's worth that.
It would be better to commit the code changes in one transaction.
Shell32 has been quite incomplete before this patch, and it's also
far from complete with this patch.

Why I have compressed the attachments:
Well, I don't think every one on the list wants to read the changes,
which are not very readable at their own. And reading through endless
hex numbers of shres.rc is also not very interesting.
