I didn't see any responses, so I'll put in my 2 cents...

I use Borland C++ Builder 4 and 5, and gcc (and mebbe VC++ 6 if I have to,
in the near future).  All of these should have no problem.  And if it helps
make the code more readable, I'm all for it.

Note also that I concur with the generally accepted practice of not
including "using" statements in header files (i.e. using explicit
namespaces), but I always use whatever "using" statements are helpful after
all headers have been included in code files.  So I have no problem if I see
a lot of:

using namespace std;
using namespace cgicc;

at the top of your code files.

Subject: [help-cgicc] Compiler namespace support

I was thinking of cleaning up the library code a little bit by removing
all the STDNS macro stuff, to be replaced with actual namespace support.
I believe that most C++ compilers by now support namespaces more
thoroughly than when I originally wrote the code.  I know gcc has worked
with namespaces for perhaps the last 3 major revisions.

My question is this: is anyone using a compiler that, were I to remove
the STDNS macro and require namespace support, would not be able to
compile the library?
