To me, Wine feels like documentation of how Windows works, not just a 
rehash of the platform SDK.  Removing documentation seems to be a step 
in the wrong direction.

If somebody wanted to use netspi.h again (ie. for non-Wine purposes) 
they could just pull it from dlls/mpr, rather than extract the 
definitions from a C source file.

I'm not exactly sure why we need to rename the types... if we consider 
it a private include file, then problems only happen if we include 
another file with the same definitions, don't they?
