Legally speaking, we should start implementing all of the functions in
the Win32/Win64 API.
If you feel that you have the technical capabilities and can understand
the method of implementing code in a clean room environment, please go
ahead and start working on this. Remember, test cases first that prove
what the Win32/64 API does with this dll as implemented through Windows
and then code the dll's functions. Remember: You cannot do this if you
EVER looked at Windows code for this dll or attempt to reverse engineer
it. There are many legal reasons for this, the biggest is that
Microsoft can attempt to shutdown this project.
For now, Vitally's suggestion is what we are using to implement this
