Yes, except for getFullPathName:

foreign import stdcall unsafe "GetFullPathNameW"
   c_GetFullPathName :: LPCTSTR -> DWORD -> LPTSTR -> Ptr LPTSTR -> IO DWORD

System.Win32 is using the wide-char APIs exclusively (ok, I haven't 
checked, but I don't know of any System.Win32 functions still using 
narrow strings).

So as you can see, there's not much left to do.  I'll fix openFile.
