Here's a rediffed version of my unfinished winhttp patch. I wrote it primarily
to explore the option of implementing winhttp on top of wininet.

Basically we are faced with a choice between this option, which requires
a Wine-only extension to wininet to implement winhttp style callbacks, and
duplicating wininet code.

I think layering can be done in a relatively clean way by making wininet
handle the superset of wininet and winhttp callbacks and adding callback
filtering as required by winhttp. Old wininet behavior can then be obtained
by an implicit filter on the wininet subset of callbacks.

If time permits I'll write a comprehensive test suite for winhttp which
should help us make an informed decision.
