Tor I am not whining because it is dll, I am asking because it is
another weird file libreoffice requests me to download, and for this
one I was unable to think of any usage.
If you say it is usable for the devel kit when you want to deploy your
tools on windows then it has perfect use case and I am all fine with

Just for the record there are still mutliple bundled things and I
don't like them all the same way, so nothing personal against the dll.
