Sorry, by that I meant to say "no chance of getting a fix in", since it
depends on fixing the Microsoft STL and I don't expect they're very
interested. Their first and foremost priority is the VC++ compiler.
But the second part of your proposal is easy: use either cl or gcc or clang
(with either libstdc++ or libc++), two combinations of which are supported by
Qt on Windows and I wouldn't be surprised if the rest using those compilers
✓ VC++ with MS STL (officially supported)
✓ gcc with libstdc++ (officially supported)
❓ gcc with libc++ (likely works)
❓ clang with libstdc++ (likely there are people using)
❓ clang with libc++ (likely works)
✗ clang-cl with MS STL (currently broken)
❓❓ clang-cl with libc++ (no clue)
