I have always viewed the importance of a library standard as a means of
specifying that an implementation which supports the language must
provide the library also. This automatically creates a common set of
functionality for all implementations of the language. I view that as a
good thing but it certainly does not mean that the library standard must
be the only library which works for nearly all implementations, as Boost
has shown.
