If there are no conflicts, add everything. If any version of windows
exports something, export it. Exporting ParseUrlA/W by name will work
with both XP and post-vista programs, not exporting it by name will
break post-vista programs. If a function was removed after a certain
version, it wouldn't be removed in wine.
