What do you need from STL ? What is lacking ? 

I program daily and, disregarding GUI classes, all classes I ever needed are 
in the FCL.

So please elaborate. You can assume (correctly) that I don't know anything
about the STL other than that it's a "standard template library". 
(which - to me - sounds like something an offset-printer would use ;) )

So a list of classes and what they are supposed to do would be nice.
