In order to address the "symbols getting overwritten" and also to keep down 
the dependencies of libwbclient, I'd propose we go for option 3.

I'm happy to do the work on this, as removing a dependency on another library 
will make it easier to eventually getting libwbclient into Wine as well. I'm 
aware this will be breaking the API, but currently libwbclient is at interface 
version 0.5, so I'd argue we should be allowed to make reasonable changes to 
the API. Is anybody going to be mortally offended by this change?
