If wParaFlags is 0 then no "var" or "out" must be added (unless bug in 
filling wParamFlags with value) as it should be something like 
"constref" as "const" is not valid because it will try to perform a 
copy. Maybe "var" could be used :-? but it could be a problem if the 
called function changes the param expecting it to be discarded on return.

For native types like int and so on a const will work, but for 
interfaces, widestring, ... inclusion of var can crash some functions 
and not adding it could crash another ones.
