The patches which silense some FIXME's have been accepted as an exception.
That covers the code which is unlikely to be fixed in near future, or the
code nobody is working on. Having a blanket FIXME_ONCE is not acceptable
at all. As I said before, better spend time learning things and fix those
FIXMEs instead. Creating documentation for the whole Win32 API and writing
the tests for single API and implementing missing features one by one are
completely different things of the scale and effort required.
