All 3? ;-)

(3) would be useful to decide which test to perform in GetShortPathName.t (i.e. do the current test if 8.3 is supported, change to the simplified test in wchristian's patch if not).
(2) would be needed for the other failing tests if 8.3 is not supported (or perhaps conditionally change the test being done, like in (1), rather than skipping completely?).
(1) has a useful documentation update that ought to go in either way.
