Yes, that is very important I guess. Are there not any exception handlers 
capable of handling this in Emacs?

Eh, thanks, forgot to send it on. Argumenting is not always easy when you get 
much resistance.

As I said earlier this could perhaps be done with a private message that is the 
equivalence of WM_KEYDOWN for just <lwindow>. But maybe then the modifiers must 
be handled as well?

Could the message instead just be repackaged and sent on to the emacs keyboard 
thread for <lwindow>? Does that interfere with message order if SendMessage is
