What I don't like is the precedent.  Featuritis is catching.

And typing on a keyboard -- all at the same time.

I do not like this patch, because it means more work for me when YA typedef
conflict arises and someone else submits a patch (followed by YA long-winded
discussion) to fix that one, and that one breaks someone else's idea of what
the typedef should be and ...

The "standard" for the w32api is MSDN docs. Why can't projects that use the
w32api follow those standards?

Now I'd better unlock the garage and let the kids out.
