I realize that CE 5, 6, and 7 are probably not top priorities for the 
community, but these changes will basically force dropping support for those 
platforms. We do have some interest in keeping WebKit working for our 
downstream build, so if it's possible to make this change over to using C++11 
in a way that can allow for building without the new features that would be 
ideal. If there is anything we can do that help make this happen let me know.

I think the goal is to (at least initially) conditionalize the use of various 
C++11 idioms.  But I think we will soon reach a critical mass where we will 
assume the compiler supports the newer language constructs.

We're already using C++11 features conditionally in WebKit. The plan is to move 
forward and make some features a requirement.

Patrick, given the broad support for this proposal from other 
ports/contributors we are going to ahead and move forward with it.
