Same here. That was why I started that thread back then. However...

part of the STL. The standard C++ library, yes indeed, but not the STL.
So that line doesn't actually promise it will be there.

Not that this is a good reason for it not to be there, of course.
Seeing, though, as you and I are the only two persons in three years to
actually request it, maybe std::bitset is simply not that much used...
