That's a philosophical problem; if you have the point of view
of the library user, the library that changes established behaviour
is always wrong, but the library maker prefers something along the
lines of  'don't take away my freedom to innovate' ;-).

I guess I'll send a patch checking the version to be compatible
with 'obsolete' Win32 api. No clue if A.Julliard will want it
though :-/
