Yes, it does, I think I tried it. But this mean duplicating dll, and 
more worrying, filesystem manipulations, which I don't like much 
(windows having this extremely annoying 'feature' of locking files by 
default, which is another thing I would have to care about).

I agree, but once you've said modifying PATH and system32 are not the 
right way, and there is no other way to do it, what's your conclusion :)
