My point is that the following will compile on most compilers:

template <class charT, class traits> class basic_ostream;

template <class charT, class traits, class Allocator>
class basic_ostringstream
        : public basic_ostream<charT, traits>

But you must fill out basic_ostream before you instantiate a
basic_ostringstream. Hopefully the job of filling out basic_ostream
will be done for you when you #include <sstream>. Otherwise you might
have to #include <ostream> yourself.
