Yes, that's all well and good, but the problem is:

        I don't own a Windows compiler.

Therefore, theory gets me nowhere, I know how to do it but I need the
actual defines. :)

Jodi Goddard was kind enough to mail me that _WINSOCKAPI_ and _WINSOCK2API_
should do it based on the top part of the winsock2.h file.
