I agree too.

But seeing how bad the STL performance is when using the default (i.e.
checked iterator on). I think the least that could be done is to talk
about it in the documentation and explain how to disable the checked
iterators ( seems like
a good place for this).

A better solution for the user would be to provide an additional
variable in the VC-8_0 toolset (e.g. bjam "-sVC80_CHECKED_ITERATOR=0").
But I dunno whether that's easily feasible.
