IMO it would be better if all new compilers/libraries used the same
implementation, and the special Dinkumware implementation used only
for older compilers/librarires. Although that might not be possible,
and there seem to be some functions that are only defined for
Dinkumware, so they might need to be supported. Anyway, it's up to
whoever does this.
