If I recall correctly from when I a long time ago had a look, Windows
nowadays (well, since XP at least) has APIs that make whatever tricks it
was that the guistdio program had to do as a separate process unnecessary.
It is more than enough to have soffice.exe and soffice.bin. (Could we at
some stage please rename soffice.bin to something with a normal .exe file
name extension? That would be no API break, would it?)
