Yes, but we have to export init_Win32CORE for the GetProcAddress()
call in Perl_init_os_extras() to succeed.

(Win32CORE is the means by which Win32 is loaded on-demand for certain
Win32::* Perl level functions for which a "use Win32;" is not
required. In this particular case, where Win32 itself is also
statically linked, it should not be necessary, but I've left it the
same as for the dynamic link case at the moment. I may revisit it to
tidy it up later, but Jan has already pointed out that it's hardly
worth the bother since the slight inefficiency involved is only on the
first such Perl function call and avoiding that may not justify the
extra code complication required.)
