My remark was not so much about including windows.h rather than 
winfoo.h, but about including it in winetest.h when the parent C file 
has already included the winxxx.h files it needs. That is, in Wine it 
seems we have a policy to put include statements primarily in the C 
files, rather than in private header files.

 * I don't see what depends on windows.h in winietest.h (besides my 
   newly added annotations).
 * if I remember correctly, removing this include did not cause any 
   warning or compilation error (even with my newly added annotations). 
   But maybe it's different if you compile with MinGW or MSVC (in which 
   case Wine's headers should be fixed).
