Yes, thanks.  I was struggling with the same thing, but evidently
there's a limit to what I can do after 11PM at my age ;-)

I think there's no need to invent harness for a single user, we can
simply do that by hand.  Please try the patch below, it's against the
current master (it also removes the unnecessary intermediate buffer
allocation while at that).

I guess they want for some reason not to have the exported functions
decorated with __declspec(dllimport).  I have no idea why, maybe for
reasons of function visibility?  It's worth asking them, I think,
because this kind of kludge can be a nuisance.
