The most problematic ones are the gcc compiler used on Mac OS X (gcc
4.0?), and MSVC 2008 compilers.  If you (or someone else equally
interested) are willing to research those two compilers to see what
subset of C++11 features they support (if at all), then I don't see
why we shouldn't use those features.

For the record, I'm also eager to start using C++11 too, but since the
standard being so new that, we need to be realistic and allow some
time for all our major platforms to support it.
