As of Xcode 4.3, new C++ projects default to clang and libstdc++; the
settings are orthogonal. Default settings for new projects do not specify a
C++ dialect, and produce warnings when C++11 features (i.e. variadic
templates, auto/overload/final keywords) are encountered.

The default dialect may change soon; I've no personal information regarding
Apple's confidence in clang's C++11 support. I would expect better IDE
(autocomplete, etc.) support for 'auto' variables at least.

I doubt the default standard library selection will change soon, because of
the lack of debug introspection support for the std::string changes. At
least... I hope they're planning to fix that first/soon.
