Cool; one last note. I've been using the dreaded XP at the office, and I
started reading some of the MSDN documentation. Apparently, for a
relatively self-contained application like this, it's fairly trivial to
implement support for the new XP Visual Styles... essentially, you need
to add an xml manifest file, edit the resource file, rebuild and you get a
binary that uses the v6 comctl widgets under XP and v5 (standard
widgets) under 2k/98/95/NT. 

So, full forwards and full backwards compatibility; and the XP Visual
Styles /do/ like kinda pretty.

It might be a nice thing to add to the release. Here's the page:
