What about things that may be missing from headers that are present? In
particular, in my test builds for pool<>, I've found that libstdc++ (default
g++ lib) is missing std::logic_error from <exception> and provides std::ios
instead of std::ios_base in <ios>. To get around these, I just put in quick
hacks into the <limits> file, which I had to provide anyway.

Personally, I always use Rule 2 for style reasons.
