No, this is not the problem.  The problem is that Standards<ToolKit>
does not work with the standard C++ library iostream implementation of 
MSVC++.  This implementation is in the std:: namespace.

Instead it works with the old iostreams which are _not_ in the std::

Ie. if I use std::istream, I get the incompatible iostreams.

The problem can _maybe_ be solved by ditching Standards<ToolKit> in
favour of the STLport version of SGI STL.

But suggesting to my coworkers that I spend time on this, when the
current Standards<ToolKit> setup is working, would be met with
