I am not sure if this qualify as "Release goals". So I'd like to ask
first what people think of using C++11 in the next release.

I know of a couple of C++ libraries which could be compiled with the
new gcc compilation option. And I have at least one application (no
shared lib) which requires C++11 to compile properly. Since C++11
introduce an ABI incompatibility [*], this may not be a Release Goal
but simply a tech-ctte decision.

Comments ?
