Why not be flexible:

1) provide good split headers for lovers of hand optimization
2) provide combiners: <stl>, <std>.

In school teacher can just tell, use <stl> for now.
Or we can use them in some fast draft test projects.

Experts in release big projects will be able tune as they want.

All happy.
