I still have one last patch to merge related to the Windows porting
that can potentially break other platforms, I promise that after that
the remaining changes will not break anything :)

The change is simple in theory: remove -> ::std::remove

but I have a couple of questions about it:

1. We basically have two options here: use _STL::remove or
::std::remove. My first version of the patch was using _STL::remove,
but I think the plan is to get rid of STLPort in the future, so the
second option would be better.

2. I can make the changes for all platforms or just put it inside some
ifdefs. In the later case, we are sure that nothing will break.
