Another example is in MSVC11 (and I assume is still in MSVC12) there is a
minor bug in std::chrono which makes it impractical to use in code that
needs high precision of time.
This forced me to use boost::chrono, which forced me to use boost::thread
instead of std::thread because the time-related interface aren't compatible
and require tons of casting.

Having alternative implementations of the standard, in particular when it's
mostly the same code whatever the target plateform, is a good thing.
