I'd prefer to get the other patch in first. Temporarily breaking <XP
compat on >=XP builds is OK with me. I'd like to think more about the
dynamic pointer loading before OK'ing that. It's a huge can of worms,
I for one do not want to obfuscate or complicate our code just for
some ancient, deprecated platform.
