[racket] MysterX

MysterX will allow you to make a COM call without type information,
but it cannot validate the argument list.  If you *know* the type info,
you can make a `blind call' where you simply push the args on the
stack, jump to the entry point, and pray that the callee is expecting
those kind of arguments.  If you are wrong, your program just crashes
and exits.

If you don't have a clue about the types, then you are out of luck unless
you can find a compatible typelib somewhere or generate one from
an IDL file or something.
