Just a quick note: GCC's scheme works thus:
1) If _GLIBCXX_DEBUG is defined, the debug containers are made available.
2) These containers lie in the std::__debug namespace. To actually use
them, the programmer needs to somehow use them explicitly. This can be
done through using statements or declarations, through typedefs, or
namespace aliases. There is no macro or compiler switch that replaces
the normal containers automatically.
It is therefore an explicit choice by the programmer to use those
containers, for every individual usage. No switching in the build system
is necessary or even possible.
