Some "slightly less than documented" Windows API's

in August 2002 on some of the API calls that were documented as
part of the Microsoft settlement agreement... but in the end, I never published it...
so here it is for your viewing pleasure;
There are some really cool functions hiding in here... one most notable is the IsUserAnAdmin
function. There's been more than once that I needed to know if the user was
an admin; before I would just check to see if they could open a file for read/write/locked
access in a known admin only path. This is much better ;-) Thanks Duncan
for pointing this out.
