So I think that means choosing 4.8, 4.9 (or anything lower) for
USE_LANGUAGES=c++11 is out of the question.  Is that what you mean?

Also, do you think we should go to the highest version that seems to
work ok, as the choice when base isn't ok?  Seems obvious to me, but I
am not confident that it's actually true :-)
