It's still a decent CS student project; good chance stretch programming
fingers and actually see the theory we've been learning in practise.

I'll assume, then, that I can address questions to address@hidden,
one of which I have now.  I've been looking over the existing code and
it's obvious the main problem is the large number of '#ifdef WCHAR's. 
It seems some extra absraction and whatnot is needed, but is this the
only problem with the code?  Are there any other major problems with
the implementation as it is?

Many thanks,
