Strange. All changes there are no biggies. For example, changing the
windows defines to enable APIs available on Vista (not even win7!),
replacing includes to tmschema.h with vssym32.h (tmschema.h is
deprecated and will throw a compiler warning with the Win7 SDK).

That's all - I can't see any reason why this would break xp64.

Yes, and with r16834 it already is dropped: due to the win defines to
use Vista APIs, Win2k won't work properly anymore because the shim
header for multimonitor APIs isn't included anymore. So the app won't
even start due to missing dll exports.

But you don't have to go through the code and remove all win2k
workarounds - we can remove those every time we touch that part of the code.
