I just grepped through the Platform SDK. All the header files I listed
(GdiPlus.h, GdiPlusPath.h, etc) are headers for the C++ wrapper API, so
they have nothing to do with the 'Flat API' that we're writing right

There is also a GdiPlusFlat.h, their equivalent of our gdip.h, which
lists all of the flat API.

Since we won't be implementing the C++ wrapper anytime soon, I'm
guessing that as long as the names of the header files do not clash with
the names of the C++ wrappers, everything will work alright?
