[TSVN] CString vs std::string

The shell extension (and others?) use std::string rather than the MFC/ATL
CString. Does anyone know the rationale for this?

I was wondering if we could get rid of std::string, and just include
<atlstr.h> to get CString in the shell extension.

I know that pre-VC7 CString implied 'lots of MFC', which we might not want
for a shell extension, but now that one can get it on its own from ATL,
there isn't the same penalty.

I've nothing against std::string, but it would be nice not to have an extra
string class, and the duplicates of some of the UTF8 functions.
