It didn't occur to me that using a native dll illustrates something that devs are interested in fixing in the builtin libs, I feel/felt kind of like I'm whining about awesome free software.

I've got a game which is calling unimplemented function(s) in
d3dx9_36.dll, and I found some comments on existing bugs, apparently
from devs stating that it's known to be incomplete and to use a native
dll to workaround.  My question is, should I be reporting stuff like
this, or do the devs already have a list of functions and know?  I
checked the known-issues also and didn't see it explicitly stated there.
Figured I should just check here :)
