i would agree with this. maybe there could be an option that determines how 
primitive types, collections and the like are created. off the top of my head 
i can think of the following different ways to generate primitives and 
1. pure C++ (std)
2. Qt
3. MFC
4. ACE
5. CORBA namespace

that's my $.02.
