Pete - 

A CW decoder on the screen of a logging program already exists.  Writelog has it
and it's a very good one.

I'm a perfect example of what K8MR wrote about - I "knew" the code when I really got
into CW contesting in the 90s...but I really didn't "know" it well enough to run.  But
using that CW decoder in Writelog boosted my ability...and to this day I still use it.  

And it's one reason I recommend Writelog to VHF/UHF and new CW contesters.  
Some VHF'ers use a program called CWGet and CWType which evidently allows you
to copy and send CW using a computer sound card and not through a logging program
(or at least that's how it was described) and I'm sure there are other programs that 
do the same thing.
