No matter what MSDN says, Wine still has to provide implementations of 
those functions, as programs still use them.  Since we *must* have 
implementations of them, then there's no reason why we shouldn't use 
those implementations in our code too.

Perhaps MSDN should say "we wrote new fancy versions of these functions 
and we want everybody to use them".  Don't pay too much attention to it.
