That is true, at the moment, that the 5.8.x isn't much better in terms
of compliance (but does have quite a few bug fixes from code-gen point
of view etc). Now that C++Builder has active support again (as opposed
to the rumoured support that there was with BCB6), Borland will start to
update the compiler in terms of compliance with the next release (which
I think is due out later this year). They do now use Dinkum for the STL
rather than an old version of STLPort so hopefully that will help with
some of the workarounds.
