Yep, fully qualified everywhere would close the exposure I think. 
Christoph was making changes in that direction - though his work might 
have been driven more by header re-work than my *nix specific worry.

Converting explicit std::<?>abs uses to std::abs and the like probably 
good to do too with care. Occasionally the aim might be to force certain 
input types / or to do indirect type conversions via a more specific 
function working on and returning certain types.
