It's hardly the place for such discution :) But in short, it's not going to happen, if the lack of stl support across various platform was the original reason behind those container, over the time, Trolltech have made their container behave differently, and most of the time better, in term of efficiency, also the container are implicitely shared (aka, data is copied only when the list is edited). All this makes it very unlikely to see those containers go away, ever.
