The initial change has been done correctly, which is to provide a "C++
standard minimum level" display field for each library which has its
JSON field of "cxxstd" set to some value. I also have agreed with Peter
Dimov's remark, which was also suggested earlier in this thread, that
the "Standard" display field for each library should be removed, since
it's meaning is obsolete and now also confusing. I have also suggested
that if we are removing the "Standard" display field we should also
remove the "Standard Proposals" and "TR1 libraries" sort categories,
which are likewise obsolete.

I personally think that since we now have a "C++ standard minimum level"
display field it would also be nice to be able to have a sort category
based on that display field called, let's say, "C++ Minimum".
