Okay, as I understand it the STL that Sun uses (libCstd) is a
RogueWave derived STL -- which subsequently is the same library which
became Apache stdcxx. Is stdcxx the new default or is libCstd still
the default with later versions of the compiler/OS?

Thanks, so I just need to check whether I can get access to Solaris
11. I'd guess if I would need to support older compilers then Boost
would be a no-go.

Thanks again Stefan!
