I'm not 100% certain about that as far as ATL is concerned, but I'll check.

But of course, using the STL means we have to link against the STL DLL, so
we might do better to avoid *that*!

Yes, or we could go to the new(-ish) unicode translation layer for Win98,
but I think that's probably a bit much.

We'll have to define "good"! I think getting rid of the #ifdef _MFC_VER
stuff would be good, but I'm not sure that it's enough.

I'll look into what the ATL CString overhead is.
