You might try splitting that up:

typedef typename Allocator::template rebind<T>::other bound_type;
typedef typename bound_type::other alloc_type;

A lot of compilers seem to choke if you don't do that.

However I don't think the STLport has a conformant allocator when used with
VC6 (it omits member templates) so this is a moot point anyway.

That's ugly as sin I know, but it does at least work.

Sure if you want it.

Yes we should do that.
