You should only need to do the cindex for the first of each set, yes?

I wonder if we don't need the length, because it can be computed on
the fly?  Not a big deal, though - it would only really help
maintainers.

Rather than leave in commented out code, you should simply add a
textual comment explaining what to avoid (if such a comment is
warranted) or simply remove the code.  Not a big deal, though.

This should be static, or be named pe_*

300 is a wonderful number, but dynamically allocating space is better.
Compromise - keep a static pointer to a malloc'd buffer that grows as
needed.

Hmmm... what happens when the function name has a percent in it?  (not
likely in C, but I'm the paranoid type...)

> +char *data_import_dll;

Should this be static?
