I didn't mean it all that literally, but fine, if you want to pick that
nit... however, TranslateMessage is only useful if you plan to process
text input, which is probably not usually the case for multimedia
players anyway (perhaps except in modal dialog boxes, but they have
their own independent message loop anyway, implemented in user32).
