Four years is a bit much. Maybe if we'd use all of C++11 but imo noone 
suggests that. Rather it's about cherry-picking nice features that are 
available already and work well and improve productivity. See also:




Anyhow, I also think that a year will at least be required. Or well, we'll 
have to wait until the BSD guys have ditched the outdated GCC in favor of a
