Good stuff. I have worked with some of the win32api elements in Ruby.
For some admin scripts of checking for open files on the file server,
determining specific workstation Windows settings against Ruby app
requirements, etc. I can tell you that the Microsoft API is a slippery
slope for sure. If some operations can be accomplished some other way
by not getting involved in the API so much the better as far as I'm
concerned. :-)
