this page, despite its name, is only about dealing with Visual C++ via
DLLs. it's cookbook-style material, although rather long to be merged
with former page

current "ghc material" is step-by-step recipe of implementing one particular
application and i think that another description should be written if
we want split it into ghc-specific and common parts

moreover, i bet that there are not too much non-ghc FFI users, so it
will be hard and almost useless to work on such splitting :(
