Sorry I got this the wrong way around: they are turned off for the std lib,
but turned on in the IDE by default (and yes this really is OK). The latter
is the reason I turned them on in the jam toolset - it makes jam compiled
libs compatible with the IDE defaults.

Grief this is getting complex, I think we may have to introduce
prefix/suffix headers to fix this completely as you suggested :-(
