Note that despite what I feel about the "minimum' required C++
version, I'm responsible for fixing C++20 compatibility in at least
the following libraries:
* Bimap
* Format
* Signals2
* Rational
* Polygon
* uBLAS (though this wasn't merged for the 1.75 release yet)

So I'm all for supporting C++20, just not requiring C++20. :)
