Since in this case Nt* APIs are used for Windows NT, I think the
chances of Microsoft changing that API in that OS are strictly zero.
So it should safe to use that on NT.  On other version of Windows, I
think there are documented solutions that don't use DLLs which might
be absent.  Pedro, is that correct, or did I miss something?
