Which features of C++11 exactly are going to be required?
C++11 introduces a lot of changes, and each compilers implement a different 
subset of it.

We need to see which feature are used and stop supporting compilers that do 
not support them.  (Or rather, decide which compiler we want to support, and 
see which feature we can then use)

I'm all for requiring basic C++11 support with Qt5.2.
That mean we could finaly use 'auto' and lambda functions.
