IMO, it probably would be. There is another project in this same space which
would be useful. The next STLPort release is going to include a
re-architected debug mode which is actually built on wrappers for the
standard containers. People might be interested in using their platform's
STL in debug mode, which would be possible if the wrappers were extracted.
