In the meantime we can work on the long vs. LONG issue:
* there are a number of places where the Windows SDK uses 'long'. But
on Win64 'long' is 32bit, while every other 64bit platform treats it as
* in Wine's headers and in the code there are plenty of places where we
use long where we really want a 32bit integer for 64bit.
The fix for all these is to replace 'long' with 'LONG' which Wine keeps
32bit just like Windows (though I wonder if we should not use something
lile 'wine_long' instead).
This is not awfully complex stuff but there's a ton of it. So we might
as well start now so that we're ready when the time comes.
