Nope. According to both the Microsoft documentation and people here on the
list, DLL import libraries can only do ordinal name lookups. A .def file
is needed to force a specific ordering. Or we can write our own import
libraries. But we've been through that, too.

I haven't actually tried it, though. Someone should.

(IIRC, Win16 had string-based DLL lookups, but Win32 does not)
