I wonder how http://www.winehq.org/site/winapi_stats is generated and if
it checks for the word "stub" in the FIXME's too for the detection of
"pseudo-stubs". As the stubs are eliminated from the spec files checking
for the stubs would have to happen only in the code. Functions that do
not return STATUS_NOT_IMPLEMENTED or do not do the appropiate
SetLastError(ERROR_CALL_NOT_IMPLEMENTED) call would need the "stub"
message in the FIXME. Unless we consider the informations in
http://www.winehq.org/site/winapi_stats to not be worth the effort.
