Right, discussion just for the sake of it is not in anyone's interests, IMO.
AFAIK, all blockers that _I_ thought existed either don't actually
exist or have been resolved.
If there are specific, actual blockers, we should certainly discuss those.

To be clear, the original message, which is still true was:
The gdb::unique_ptr patch does _not_ make us require C++11.

IMO such a discussion doesn't have to block starting to require C++11,
and can happen in parallel, since for sure we're not going to start
thinking about requiring C++14 right now.
In any case, Eli has suggested a policy.
