Thank you for the detailed response from Herb.

My opinion is that we shouldn't support them. The features in the CTPs appear to be rather buggy still (when STL did a talk showing off the new features he stumbled upon one bug himself, and a commenter pointed out another), so the options would be either to mark features as enabled that don't work very well yet (bad idea), or add additional config macros to indicate that the compiler sort-of supports the features (worse idea).

If we decide to support the CTPs, I think we should only mark features as supported where some testing has shown that they are largely bug-free.
