- different policies: SGI extentions are in namespace std, Boost
  libraries are in boost

- you may just download the whole thing (SGI STL or STLport) and
  use it over your vendor's STL

- we may just put a link the SGI STL page from the Boost page

- if you have the SGI STL installed, these files (povided by
  Boost) could conflict if what you suggest is done
