As a library maintainer, I have no intention of
doing anything of the kind. I do use C++11 in
some places, but it's controlled by #ifdefs.
I don't plan to remove the C++03 branches for
a few more years at least. There are some
places where C++14 will allow me to make the
code significantly better, but I'm certainly
not about to go out of my way to use new
language features just for the heck of it.

In Christ,
