Hi Steve,

The answer to most of your questions is 'no, no reason', 'no, I don't
want ADL' or 'okay, I'll do that'. Apart from those below.

I'll look into this soon (I don't have access to windows at home right now).

Both of these are preceded by 'use namespace std'. I was trying to
support libraries that don't define the functions in the std
namespace. ADL shouldn't be a problem here as the arguments are
floats. But I could use the compatibility headers instead.

I don't think the standard specifies exactly what the minimum
requirements for 'Allocator::pointer' are. But I'd expect operator+ to
use difference_type so I'll add casts. Maybe I should check for
allocators which return a 'max_size' which doesn't fit into
