After poking around Boost.Config and other Boost libraries, it seems that
cxx11/CXX11 is the commonly adopted code name for C++11. Therefore, I have
no problem with cxx11/CXX11 in macros, code symbols, directories, files, etc
when there's a need to name C++11 as Boost.Algorithm, Boost.Config, etc are
Naming the specific C++11 standard can be considered a different issue from
naming a C++ files .cpp/.hpp. For example add_with_cxx11_lambdas.cpp is a
C++ files that implements and addition using C++11 lambdas and I think
that's a fine name (maybe even better than add_with_cpp11_lambdas.cpp).
I'd consider this issue closed.
