yeah, i'm a big fan of using stl and boost whenever possible.
the prob is that *deployed* projects like mozilla have a legacy
of working on top of a not-so-consistent C++ infrastructure, and
it's ambitious to say "exceptions and templates are stable enough,
let's use them as they are intended to be used."
