On Windows ctypes has CDLL for libraries using the cdecl calling 
convention and WINDLL for libraries with the stdcall calling convention.

I can't see any similar distinction in cffi's documentation.  Can cffi 
magically work out which calling convention to use, or are you 
restricted to the cdecl calling convention?
