Hi Barry.

You're right I am aware of those functions.  There is even a precedent for
using dll's with GCL via an old WinCE port:


which I once built with MS Visual C++.

Unfortunately the functionality is reduced compared to the GCL custom
relocation code and as I am deep in that code with limited time I don't want
to divert from that path until it is obvious that there is no other choice.

| Mike,
| You may already know this, but the Win32 API calls
| LoadLibrary/LoadLibrayEx
