When a dll is first implemented it probably returns S_OK since no 
interfaces were used yet, but some programs just depended on the dll 
being present. However the FIXME should not be removed then, since if it 
does implement interfaces and it gets freed while in use this can be a 
serious crash. I'd rather have that message then as a red flag for 
investigation. Returning nothing in case of S_FALSE is fine though, but 
a TRACE() would still be nice there just in case.
