Well, there's still plenty of test cases that can be written for each 
DLL.  Ideally we start from the bottom (ntdll, kernel, gdi, etc) with 
our test cases so that we can fix code in the dlls and programs that 
depend on those dlls.

Following that line of thought, imagehlp (used by winedbg), cabinet 
(used by msi and setupapi), wsock32 and crypt32 seem like good choices.
