Yes, I have and it is a waste of time. The number of patches required
to make WebKit compile with Cstd is too high. These patches will never
be accepted upstream, because they do not address problems with WebKit
code, but limitations of Cstd. Guarding the patches with #if
defined(__SUNPRO_CC) creates some textbook examples of unmaintainable
and almost incomprehensible code.

QT4 will be integrated in Solaris with WebKit and linked with stdcxx.
