Hi Pedro,
I kept silence on the discussion in the past several weeks, because
I don't know much on C++.  I can't think of any reason we should
block C++ 11 transition.  I've got "C++ Primer, fifth edition" on my
desk.  It covers C++ 11 :)

It is a right thing to move to C++ 11.  However, we need to think
about the priority of each work.  We still have bugs to fix, new features
to add, patches to review.  They are very important in the short term,
next release, for example.  We can't afford several months doing code
conversion without any real development and bug fixes.  Code
conversion should be a background task, running along with development
and bug fixes for some years.
