I think that's not entirely correct. WinMain() is not required, AFAIK.
It's the linker switch which does the trick and you can actually relink
an existing .exe file with a changed setting and so change the
behaviour. I've done that on occassion and though it has a slightly
"hackish" feel it has always worked.
