Shouldn't code from your assignment be part of the STL?

If some generic, helper code gets written by many (most) users of some library just to make using this library safer and easier it's a sign the library is missing this code...

 

I'd like to see episode on how and why the STL has changed over the last couple of years (I think of LWG's work) and what's planned in the future.

 

Thanks for popularizing C++.
