Ok, I didn't really think so, since there is a distinct lack of
further discussions of the issue on the mailing lists.
Unfortunately this issue probably stops me from using C++11 at all, at
least until GCC changes their default and some of the larger distros
have started using that version of GCC.
So C++11 is at least a few years away for me, it seems
