+1 to WTL. Great way to quickly code UI in C++.

I'm hitting an annoying bug in Moray and went to download the source and fix but
found this thread instead.

If this project is still under-staffed, then I'd like to contribute. I'm worked
on shipping products using VC 2005, C++, WTL.

Contact me directly and I'll give resume details.
