Most people don't, but some do. In Jones and Lins _Garbage Collection_
there's mention of "misidentification" or "false" pointers in
applications with large compress bitmaps. Also, for highly connected
structures, I remember reading that there could be a problem.

I was hoping stl_container.cpp would be as close as possible w/o
compiler support. I think Detlef also mentioned this somewhere
in his article. The closer it is, then the less testing would
need to be done to change the compiler.
