ShimAPI Compatibility Engine

Used in Danmakufu Remake to run on additional operating systems

IRC Channel: channel #lunar

What is this:
This compatibility engine allows a program to be compiled using the latest compilers and still work on old operating systems Additionally new features such as UTF-16 and UTF-8 can be used freely without breaking compatibility with non Unicode aware operating systems. Furthermore some new Windows API functions can also be used and automatically be emulated on operating systems that do not support them.
