Make your MFC Apps look like Metal?!

Some people see beauty in the strangest things, like this abandoned project to provide MFC controls that look like Swing Components. It is four years abandoned, but even four years ago the author refused to make the fonts bold and use the horrible Lucida fonts.

That fonts are the biggest problem with the swing look and feel, even more than the "Owe my eyes it's purple" color scheme. So why did the ocean theme just fix the colors and never the fonts? That's going to make the ocean theme the least used new feature of JDK 1.5.
