New API functions for loading external dlls

It seems MS announced three new functions yesterday:


These are "to help developers correctly and securely load external 
libraries". [1]

I remember some talk about SetDllDirectory() in the past [2], so now it's 
interesting how these two ways would coexist.

Plus, could the new way help to simplify loading Gecko / XPCOM [3] by a 
chance?  Probably not:)
