Sorry, that was sloppy wording on my part. I meant to say something
more like this:

* Direct support for C++11 needs improving.

And by that I mean three main items:

(i) Improved conformance with C++11 idioms.

(ii) Improved conformance with C++11 std::thread patterns.

(iii) Explicit #ifdef support with code for C++11 features. I didn't
look closely enough to see if these are already in there, but by this
I would mean move construction, initialiser lists, rvalue this
overloads, deleting operators where appropriate etc - the usual

I understand entirely. I didn't go into detail because I didn't think
I could improve on what others have said, and I don't have the time
to contribute much more detail (I have maths coursework due next
week). Hopefully the above clarifies my position.
