I couldn't really determine from the recent thread titled
"[boost] [test] new features use c++11 features" whether this new and
improved Test unconditionally or conditionally would use C++11 features?

I know you all are all up in arms about moving the "state of the
language forward" and all, but it'd be a bit sad if a rather important
piece of Boost infrastructure suddenly became unusable without any
rationale or warning.

Call me a luddite, but I like when my code can continue to benefit from
library bugfixes and improvements. Staying on legacy Boost doesn't help

I really don't like playing whack-a-mole on every single C++11 creep
into Boost, but it seems that unless checked, it poisons everything.
