I am running into a compilation problem on MS C/C++ 16 (aka VS 2010).
Specifically, I am getting the following error due to an include that
has been added in 5.01:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\include\shfolder.h(14) :
fatal error C1189: #error :  shfolder.h/shfolder.lib provide platform
independence with versions prior to Windows 2000. Use shlobj.h/shell32.lib
if targetting Windows 2000 or higher.


The following primitive patch seems to address the issue:

--- common.h.orig       2014-10-02 04:12:48.000000000 -0600
