There's no research at stake here, it's a software engineering issue,
and as I said I'm happy to compromise on it.

Using features from a relatively new standard, especially one that has
added so much and has so much uncertainty around it, is never a good
idea from the software engineering perspective.

FWIW, The LLVM Project switched to C++11 (or the subset supported by a variety of compilers (Clang, GCC, and MSVC) with a horizon of about a couple of years ( http://llvm.org/docs/CodingStandards.html#supported-c-11-language-and-library-features ). Seems to be doing OK so far.
