Thanks, Steve! I'm glad to hear that a "using namespace std" directive
appears to work fine, for more conformant, as well as for less
conformant compilers.

I'm off now until August 13, so I think I'll just commit the workaround
to the trunk when I'm back. (If it's still needed by then,
of course!)

Kind regards, Niels
