Drv* are implemented by the Driver, while Eng* and Friends are 
the Graphic Rendering Engine (on windows in win32k.sys).
The Exports in GDI are parts of the GRE for Usermode Printer Drivers.

The main Problem with the Rendering-API in Wine 
(between GDI and our Drivers: winex11, wineps, mfdrv, enhmfdrv)
is more like win3x and far away from DDI (Device Driver Interface).
