Yes, I undestood the situation and the question perfectly well.
The original author chose one of the possible versions, and
James submitted a patch to change them all according to a
(not yet existing) policy. And I'm against a policy in this

Actually, I think that putting std:: at every reference is
not preferable, as in 99% of the cases we mean std::string,
and in 100% we mean std::cout, so the prefix is basically
redundant noise. Do we actually have more than one or two
cases where a name by itself would look ambiguous? I'm only
aware of ./src/GUI/AirportList.cxx, where "string" would be
considered a pu-member without the std.

But then again, I don't really have a strong preference.
