No, it is not, you'll still have lots of work-arounds [because support is
patchy and buggy, and to be more blunt. it [the compiler and the STL]
simply violates the standard left, right and middle], and you'll get zero
response from MS reporting anything. Test stuff with the latest and the
greatest and you'll have their full attention.
