It is. But it does make the apps a bit bigger (though not as bit as 1 app

If you've got several apps in one distribution which use MFC, it's
generally better to link dynamically. In terms of distribution size, I
should think there's not much in it for TSVN.

MS are certainly encouraging people towards dynamic linking, and I think
VS2005 reduces the number of different CRT variants (the single-threaded
static has gone), but I think static is still being allowed even there.
