That won't solve the problem if you use "using namespace boost::shmem"
and "using namespace std" because although you don't include containers
directly, the library might use some containers internally (for example,
map) and you can get ambiguous symbols. I suggest using a namespace
alias if you find "boost::shmem::container" too long, but if you try to
push all std names and boost::shmem names to the global namespace you
will surely have problems. This is likely to happen also with other
boost libraries that mimic STL algorithms.
