Strictly there's nothing incorrect about the docs, and `cdll.msvcrt` is no more incorrect than it has been since Python 2.4 or so (whenever we  stopped using VC6). It will find the DLL and you can call the functions, but it isn't the same DLL as the exports in the `msvcrt` module will call.

Might be worth a note pointing this out, but it's probably better off with a different example. I'll try and think of something, but I'm fairly distracted at the moment and would appreciate suggestions. Otherwise I'll get there eventually.
