It's harder than it seems, esp. because it's not well supported by
mingw-w64. Also even if we did it, Wine would still forward these calls
to msvcrt, so one would need another native DLL. Given that, we need
more serious reason for the change than supporting hackish winetricks
verb. Fixing our msvcrt implementation is the way to go IMO.
