Yes, I agree it is a bug and should be fixed. I was only correcting the first 
poster's assumption that QtWebKit shouldn't be compiled with C++11. The branch 
of Webkit used in Qt 5.2 was C++11 only when branched, and the use of 
C++11'ism were carefully reverted (except those I obviously missed) in order 
to be able to support OS X 10.6 gcc 4.2. If that platform had not been 
necessary, I would have kept QtWebKit C++11 only, to keep it closer to 
upstream WebKit.
