Using C++11 by default

Hi Andreas,

thank you for these insightful (and admittedly frightening) links. Given
these discussions, mixing compilation units compiled with -std=c++11 and
-std=c++98 looks risky indeed. It seems that the problem can be avoided
only by compiling the whole C++ code base consistently with one kind of
-std argument. But I wonder how do Linux distributions do that? For
example, if Qt5 uses C++11, does it mean that Qt5 must not be linked to
programs compiled with -std=c++98? This is hard to believe.

I agree. But how should we go about this?
