The specific fear is I'll spend time converting our code to work with 
gcc 4.8/C++ 11 (we currently use gcc 4.1 and 4.4, sadly) and then find 
that things are too broken and I have to revert my changes. Maybe it's 
unfounded. If I end up working with our C++ code again (which is 
probably just a matter of time) I will surely give gcc >= 4.8 a try.
