Empty would be enough, but I wasn't able to get WriteProfileSectionW()
to write an empty section.

I haven't been able to find an example of what should be in there
online, and I don't have any old 9x machines. XP is blank as well.

I originally had it in kernel32, but moved to gdi32 since I thought it
may end up enumerating fonts. I suppose I should move back to kernel32
and try to get an empty section to work.

Thanks for looking.
