Which APIs that you used in the patch are not available on Windows 9X?
I thought I went over all of them, and they all are, but maybe I
missed some.

Actually, there is only one: GetConsoleWindow. However, the WH_KEYBOARD_LL hook is not implemented at all on Win98. So, if we want to offer the old w32-register-hot-key/w32-phantom-key-code functionality to users of Win98, the new patch needs to be added to the existing code instead of replacing it.

Which road should I take? Assuming that the patch runs on Win2k, the only people affected by the choice are those running Win98 and ME. Keep the old functionality for a bit messier code base and documentation, or replace the old functionality and have Win98/ME people lose w32-register-hot-key?
