How do you want to accomplish this? Has a Windows DLL enough info
about how to call a function (i.e. which parameters to expect,
maybe the layout of structs and so on)?

The question might sound ironic. No, I'm genuinley curious. I'm
pondering for a while about `glueless bindings' myself (along the
lines: if gdb can do that... -- but gdb uses the source plus
debugging info: I'd be happy to get that, and you seem to be even
more ambitious).
