OK that's fine, I verified that the original problems are fixed with
latest snapshot and that fix.
I offer stl.sip for inclusion in SIP. It covers my own needs right now
(vectors) but shall I need to wrap more STL containers (sets, maps,
ecc.) I would updated it with support for them. I guess that it might be
useful for people wrapping C++ code with SIP.
There is a high degree for redundancy in it, as you can see. You might
want to think about it as a way to improve SIP itself.
