OK, I've been hoping somone might take an interest in CE with me.

Is this link to a CE port for stl a new one for you to consider?

I'll be out for a couple of weeks to Tucson but when I return I'll try to 
look it over if you are not having luck with another port.  Has anyone 
actually got the Sword libraries to link to a UI under VC++ at all yet?  I 
have some MFC UI components built in house that I can cyphen off for making 
a decent UI on a ce platform.  It would make for some good sanctification of 
the code sense much of it may become part of a weapon system on a handheld 
device for the infantry.
