In general, anything that runs under DPMI *now* will continue to work
in DPMI later, unless you are using low-level routines that talk
directly with go32.  For example, if you call open() it will continue
to work, but if you call turbo_assist()'s open function it will not.

Functions like dosmemget, dosmemput, _go32_my_ds, etc...  will
continue to work, and they are required to run under DPMI now anyway.
