That's a no-brainer, but if that was the only thing you were saying,
then how does it relate to the issue to which you responded,
i.e. whether we should decide to start using C++11 now?  That decision
has IMO very little to do with whether we like C++03 more or not,
because if we go by that criterion alone, we should take Jan's
suggestion and switch to the latest version as soon as it is released,
