class list : public ::std::list< ... >
int size() const { return ::std::list< ... >::size(); } // plus possibly

 This class is technically still also std::list, so it should be a drop-in 
replacement for all cases. And IMO a much nicer solution than 
people "randomly" adding casts all over the codebase.
