Builtin MSHTML works fine with shdocvw. urlmon
is a bit worse. It currently fails after BindToStorage
call. I didn't try to get it working with current
implementation as it's really just a hack and my
tests show that it's very buggy. Switching
to use pluggable protocol means rewriting it
and I hope to get it working then.

shdocvw currently uses the Mozilla ActiveX control
implementation of WebBrowser control. Some
apps work fine with it, so we need to have them
working with our own  implementation before we
can get rid of Mozilla ActiveX in shdocvw (and have
only Gecko depended MSHTML). Meantime
we can develop the WebBrowser version that is
used when Mozilla ActiveX control is not
available (it's just a stub now) to use MSHTML.
