Well, it seems you should rename the file to bip.dll, which is probably the
name you registered for the protocol from within the code.
I wasn't aware of the fact that WS enforces the same name to be used for the
protocol name and dll though (?)
I presume the DLLs are loaded once, at runtime, by walking through the
plugins\version folder. So why should the name of the DLL be needed again
after it has been loaded?
