What are the plans to finish the WinAPI in druntime? It's grossly
lacking at the moment.

I can make time to adjust the binding from dsource.org bindings project to
druntime, but I need the requirements for druntime WinAPI.

Also there are severe problems with the libs, distributed with DMD. They're
totally ancient! The d modules alone won't fix the problem.
What are the legal and technical problems involved in updating the libs?

Those libraries are internally just trampolines, no code. Hence they can be
updated.

Is core.sys.windows.windows the right module for it? Somehow I would expect for the code to live in phobos std.windows module.

No. The C OS function declarations go in druntime. The same goes for all of the POSIX functions as well as any other system functions specific to Linux, Mac OS X, or FreeBSD. Any Windows stuff in Phobos which uses Windows OS functions should be wrappping OS functions rather than simply being declarations for them. - Jonathan M Davis
