Which is what Predef uses. And also uses __GLIBCPP__ as fallback. But, yes
they are dates, as that's the only real indicator of *only* libstdc++ I
knew of.

There's _GLIBCXX_RELEASE but that's only for 7 and up. Config uses

Hm, hadn't kept up on that. I'll have to add that if available.

How would __has_include help?

But that's the g++ version, not the lib version.

I guess I should check the Config code :-)
