[OpenAFS-devel] And just where is afs_fme.dll?

Looks to me like this might be legacy bits that can be removed.  I see
afs_fme.dll on older AFS 3.4 clients, but it doesn't exist with 3.5 or
3.6.  My guess is that the functionality has been moved to afs_shl_ext.dll,
and in fact if you look at afs_shl_ext.h, you'll notice that the comment
still refers to the "FME dll":

// afs_shl_ext.h : main header file for the FME DLL

Also, from the registry key name, this key might only apply to the old
Windows File manager, which you probably don't use or even have on your NT
