Is there any reason that across all files we don't report the same driver
version? Does windows not do this? Maybe it'd be easier to keep the code in
wined3d and just have user32 and such call for the driver details? I haven't
looked at how windows does it yet, but I'm just wondering if you guys have
any idea of the top of you head.
