Do you think Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes?

Some say Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes.  Others think there are perhaps two writers, perhaps Solomon and the "preacher" (Qoheleth). Yet others say Ecclesiastes was composed centuries after Solomon.  

What is your opinion.

Comments appreciated.

Also, any thought on Ecclesiastes itself are welcome.

Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes either totally or almost totally.

Someone or some people wrote Ecclesiastes, perhaps much later than Solomon's time.

Went with Solomon as most likely. But usually when I teach from Ecc., I just identify the writer the way the writer identified himself: Qoheleth, or "the teacher," etc. So I usually try to avoid staking too much of the interp. on the identity of the writer . . . since this is not really revealed.
