Resynched with cvs.

I've reimplemented SHGetFolderPath and its cousins
based on testing in WinXP and documentation.  The
high-level improvements are:
- the correct registry location to override is User
Shell Folders, not Shell Folders
- if User Shell Folders doesn't exist in HKCU, HKLM
should be tried
- SHGetSpecialFolderPath should call SHGetFolderPath,
not vice-versa
- the default values should be localizable
- some of the parameter checking and returned
LPITEMIDLISTs were a bit off
