In addition to what Carl said, there are a few more performance
std::string uses the small string optimization, no reference counting
and exponential growth (I think). This means performance
characteristics are different from MSVC6's lib and STLport.
Dinkumware's IOStreams is still, I suspect, slower than STLport's. On
the other hand, it is conforming, and STLport isn't.
