I don't think that porting from C++ containers to Qt containers is anything 
but a waste of time. C++ coders are supposed to know standard, now decade+ 
old library that comes with C++. How porting it to a less-standard, 
toolkit-specifit containers will make it more accessible is beyond me. Anyone 
who codes in Qt is supposed to know C++, right?

I don't think that there's anything lacking in the C++ library documentation 
nor implementation departments, so please tell me how moving from a container 
library that's part of the language standard, and is built upon in numerous 
boost extensions, to a container library that comes with Qt is good?

I'm amazed by the condensed "crap-stl" argument -- or rather, the lack of 
it . . .

Cheers, Kuba
