What's ws2help.dll for?

While packaging my application, I discovered a few entries in the dependecy files list which rose my suspicion. Before, I pack them I ask, while I know ws2_32.dll is the Winsock 2.2 implemention, what is ws2help.dll for? Looks related but it also gives me nachi like feelers. Tell me it is not the MSBlast worm variant, please? I opened it with Dependency Walker and it seems to have a valid export table, but I've not heard of the functions before WahEnumerateHandleContexts etc. I searched MSDN for one of the function names and got 0 search results.
