I have a practical problem with using std::istream on the MSVC++
platform.  Since the Standard C++ Library as delivered with MSVC++ 5
and 6 is broken, we're using Standards<ToolKit> from ObjectSpace to
provide us with the parts of the Standard C++ Library we're using.

And Objectspace Standards<ToolKit> is not compatible with the Standard 
C++ Library iostreams of MSVC++.
