Sorry Yao, I guess that might have sounded harsh.  (I think I may
not be parsing your C++ standard comment correct.)  Thanks for looking
at the patch, BTW.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: please, anyone, if there are
objections to updating gnulib, please form them without considering
C++11.  I just mentioned that because I thought it'd be nice to
say what prompted me to look at updating gnulib today.

I think now's the perfect time to update, since we're early in
the release cycle.
