What do you mean? Have you tried STLport ( www.stlport.org ) or 
you are saying STLport is not supported ( and BTW STLport 
project  is free ) ? 

If you have tried STLport - I'l like to know what in particular do you mean by 
STL is 'unsupported' ?

If you have not tried STLport - that was your and only your descision to 
reinvent the wheel.

Some are paid and some get quite a bit  of fame only because they are
participating in something called 'free software'.  Some are not only payed,
but also get a lot of fame. There are many different kinds and reasons 
why people are participating in 'free' software.

I see. So now there are some brand new holy cows over there, called 'free' 
software. ( To me - software is either good, or bad. No matter is it 'free' 
or 'not' ).

Somehow you are participating in some marketing-driven attempt to 
re-animate some heap of code produced by fulltime developers 
who have left some company long time ago.  This is your and only 
your descision.

I don't understand why now nobody can even *touch*  that monster.

Nobody is critisizing you.  The statement was:

Excuse me - what is wrong  with this statement?
