I did once use this:

  template <class T> void freeVector(std::vector<T>& v)
	  std::vector<T> empty;

and lots of other C++ stuff in the rx7~ external for Linux, so there
it must be OK. This wasn't written with "flext" yet, but now I use
"flext" for almost any external to keep all my code in C++.

STL is fine, and if it wasn't for PD someone should fix some bugs
somewhere, I think, probably the compiler builders should then.
