I have created everything for myself. However, sub-optimally in my opinion, they have more and more begun to tie the language to the libraries, so that fundamental features are not available unless you use their libraries. That really sort of undermines one of the things that was always nice about the language, that it could be used in tabula rasa mode to create something unique and consistent.

And some of the template stuff is just really bad. A lot of it isn't actually supported by the language, it's dependent on knowing how the compiler fails. And a lot of the way you have to do things (generic templatized callback parameters for instance) can cause enormous lists of errors that have little to do with the actual problem.
