At this point I was thinking to just fix any bugs and pay attention to
any trac items and PRs.

You are one of the library authors. Do you want to address any of these
issues yourself ? I have created PRs for some fixes but lambda needs
someone to apply them.

As for using 'decltype' for compilers in c++11/c++14 mode you would
still need to address all those not using c++11/c++14 mode in their code.
