I don't think this is right. After checking, the MS tools do not seem
to do this.
Can someone explain to me what internal_name is supposed to mean? I
can't find it documented anywhere what exactly its meaning is!
name = internal_name
What does internal_name represent? Does it even do anything? While it
is carried from input .def to output .def, it does not appear to be put
into either output import libraries or output .exp's.
I notice that Mumit Khan added an option --add-stdcall-alias to dlltool,
but how can this possibly do anything if aliases do not seem to do anything?
