Mike,

STLPort "native iostreams" are a hack, and I'm inclined not to support
them.  Lots of subtle things don't work right because you can't make
the fact that they're in a different namespace truly invisible.  If
there's a small patch needed to get your stuff going, and you post it,
I'll probably be willing to apply it.  Can you use STLPort iostreams
instead?
