w32-pass-lwindow-to-system does not work as expected

When discussing AltGr I noticed that w32-pass-lwindow-to-system probably does not due what the author intended. The documentation is correct, no Start Menu is opened if the variable is nil. However I would believe that the author wanted to use this key in Emacs. It is however still not possible, the key is tighed to Explorer still.

To overcome this a low level keyboard hook must be used. A good starting point summary is found at http://www.codeproject.com/win32/AntonioWinLock.asp. Look under subtitle "Hooks".

This is of course applicable to the rwindow counterpart too. This also applies to the function w32-register-hot-key which is not able to register hot keys for those keys because they are already registered by Explorer.

I think the variables and the function should be either removed or the behavior corrected.
