Granted linking with multiple "STL" implementations is a pain. But
why would you want to use multiple implementations of
that-subset-of-the-standard-C++-library-colloqually-known-as-"STL"
these days?

The native standard libraries of MSVC7 and g++3 and 4 (including mingw
and cygwin). are good enough to use, and have been so for quite a
while. (are there any other C++ compilers that are important these
days? SunPRO? Intel? If so, I'm guessing they have quite adequate
standard C++ libraries)

<unsolicited-lurker-advice>
On the note of the subject of this thread: stay with C unless you have
_really_ compelling reasons to change it. And if you have to change
it, change it to something in the mainstream.
