Probably part of the reason is their compiler has gone through quite an evolution since then. I don't even think it's the same codebase - as in it has been rewritten at least once.

It used to be their compiler wasn't standard enough to implement the STL properly. That was in the bad old days of 6.

So bet on having to change your code in places. It's no so easy for an automagic tool to rewrite C++.
Real programmers use butterflies
