I doubt it. Around Boost various features are used when they're
supported by the compiler. Often they're of course emulated in C++98 but
even then this has limitations so effectively there are things which can
be done only in C++11. What is more, some people on the list already
mentioned about the implementation of libraries which would require some
features from C++11 to compile.

We could just check:
