      Description

      Research/design an API reorganization with the following goals:

      • Useful functional organization (use static libs? MinWin API-sets can serve as a basis)
      • Useful combination (combine commonly used APIs from kernel32/advapi32/... into a singe DLL, again MinWin API set organisation as a basis)
      • How to allow testing DLLs on Windows (maybe add custom targets for self-contained full DLLs per supported target version: kernel32_0x502 for 2k3)
      • Version specific API management (shims in higher version DLLs / version specific exports / use the PEB version fields in each base DLL)
      • DLL Naming (we probably need custom DLL names for our core DLLs)
