If you go through the summary of complaints:
you will notice that some are not true or not relevant when you use Qt 
rather than the STL, e.g.:
* "No reflection": QObject actually gives you reflection.
* the example in "Very complicated type system", which is really an STL
  issue. The Qt equivalent QMap<QString,QString> is just that.

Some are also no longer true in C++11, e.g.: "you can't initialize 
std::vector with {1,2,3}".

And "Unhelpful standard library" is exactly my point. :-)
