The ublas guys wanted it - std::iterator is the basically the same with or
without STLport on MSVC isn't it? I do know that reverse_iterator differs a
lot, but I think that array was the only use for that case and that tested
OK, as did utility/iterator_test.cpp when I tried it. However if it's
causing problems disable it again, and let the ublas guys find some other

Maybe we need BOOST_STLPORT_ITERATOR for the non-standard STLport version,
but we've got enough macros already :-(
