I don't object switch to C++14, on the contrary.
I am trying to step into boots of reviewers though,
hence my encouregement to stick to the original plan.
And, to keep my rear aspect of personality safer ;)
in case some reviewers object the switch
- AFAIU, I will be the one to solve the dispute,
and do it without any tool like Boost policy or guideline at my disposal.

I do acknowledge that from maintenance point, it is better for
Hans to release Histogram as C++14 library.
I agree, it would be better for users too.

Hans, let's get it done this way:
- announce your plan to reviewers and request for feedback
- give some reviewers a week to expresses any objections
and move forward.

I wouldn't expect withdrawal of ACCEPT vote from any of our reviewers,
but who knows....

Best regards,

Mateusz Loskot,
