[Live-devel] LIVE Design? STL / Data Types / snprintf / strDup

A couple of general design questions, if you please: 
1.  Is there specific reasoning that LIVE555 does not use STL?  I have not 
worked with the STL before, so I can't really answer this question when it 
comes up.
2.  I saw in the online "todo" list that there was an item to change 
certain data types in the library.  Is it your intent to change ALL 
standard data types to the u_int32_t - styled types?  Or only when the 
type size is specified by a standard (RTSP/RTP/RTCP, etc.)?
3.  I notice in Media.cpp at line 181 there's a comment saying not to use 
"snprintf" because it is not on some systems.  Are there other calls like 
this that are intentionally avoided?  I did notice that you created 
strDup.cpp.  Which <string> functions do you consider "allowed" when 
working with your code?
