[M3devel] NT386 (win32) targets and dll2lib

I am not familiar with the build strategy for libraries on Win32, but  
I am aware of the use of the command dll2lib being used to insert  
argument checks on library calls in support of the old style  
incremental/generational GC based on memory protection.  With the new  
compiler-supported incremental/generational GC, the calls to  
m3_arg_check/RTHeapDep__CheckArgs for library calls are no longer  
needed, and I was hoping to eliminate the RTHeapDep code completely  
for all targets.   Is there anyone out there familiar with the  
functionality of dll2lib who would be willing to remove insertion of  
the no longer needed checks?
