When you sort by 'C++ Minimum' those libraries which have the same
cxxstd value ( or no cxxstd value ) should be secondarily sorted
Other people seem to have wanted to bike-shed the "C++ Standard Minimum
Level" line to something shorter, maybe even just "C++ Minimum" itself.
I have personally no great preference other than wanting programmers to
understand that the value given means the library supports that C++
standard level on up rather than supporting only that C++ standard level
and nothing higher. I know assuming the latter would be foolish, but
programmers have been known to become confused on a lot less.
Thanks for the great work !
