This one's lingered for a while. So... it looks sort of similar to the
unix-only pagein stuff we have, e.g. unx/source/pagein.c except that
it's an external program that finds if the systray app is running and if
it is then force that to preload the writer and calc dlls so that
launching writer and calc is then quite fast, right ?

Seeing as we maintain those "pagein" lists, maybe the best approach
would be to package those lists for windows as well and get the systray
(sfx2/source/appl/shutdowniconw32.cxx I think) to load them directly,
rather than having an external app that forces it to do it ?
