Re: Args list too long

No problem doing that on Win32.

If I remmember correctly from my old days ow Win32 programming, 
global functions in obj file don't even need to know if they are 
going to be exported out of the DLL or not. It's done later 
(through a .DEF usually) when you link the objects into the dll.
