Windows CE support in MinGW.org headers

Keith Marshall-3
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Do we really want to keep this?  Right now, I see a dozen WinCE
specific references, distributed among five W32API header files.
Not only does this barely scratch the surface of what would need
to change, to properly support WinCE, but AFAICT, much of it is
wrong anyway.

Frankly, this is a maintenance burden I would prefer not to carry.
Unless someone else is prepared to take this on, I propose ripping
out all of the existing WinCE specific references.  FWIW, I have
already done this for <winuser.h> and <wingdi.h>, while retaining
the attached patch to reinstate them; (the FIXMEs are my additions,
indicating what I perceive to be wrong with the present references,
and how I believe they should be corrected).

Hard for me to say.  I doubt anyone using MinGW for WinCE anyway.  Maybe
tag the repository so someone looking might have a chance to find what
was included to begin with.
