I don't dispute that our current approach is not perfect. You are right,
there may be some problems with it, and in the long term, we may have to
duplicate them. However, doing so mow would imply a lot of work, and as you
can see, we're way short of manpower. From what I've seen, we can safely
implement most of the XP functionality into the user32 without risking of
breaking stuff. That is to say, I don't see right now a big need to dupicate
the controls. Let's cross that bridge when we get there.
