I was under the impression that it was desirable to cross compile as many
dlls as possible in different environments. shell32 has currently only a
few reasons why it can't be compiled and linked in Visual C and I think it
is a good idea to improve on that.
This of course isn't any reason but maybe an indication: native shell32 does
not import RtlCreateUnicodeStringFromAsciiz() either.
