Also look in namespaces.html.

Don't depend on functions that aren't in the ISO Standard Library being
in namespace std.  As we find them, we move them to __gnu_cxx.

Also, be aware that not every function is listed in the URLs above, only
because we haven't had the time to get to all of them.  See todo.html for a
very small fraction of what's left to be done.


I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
