I am good with changing that. Maybe just "C++ standard minimum". I am
worried that if we just specify "C++ standard" or "C++ level" there will
be programmers who think that if they see, let's say, "11" that they
will not be able to use that library unless they are compiling with
exactly C++11. I know that may sound ridiculous, but the less confusion
the better.
