Yes, with more than 20 different compilers being supported it is
certainly unfair to say STLport is not cross platform.  However, maybe
the biggest worry is that by adding STLPort VTK will rope in another
dependency, which might not be desired.  So unless compilers ship with
a working STL it might not make sense to use STL.  That said, I find
it hard to believe that STL is not standard enough today.
