To clarify this a bit:
Using c++11 / libc++ in Qt Creator would mean that we need to drop support for *compiling* Qt Creator on Mac OS X 10.6 (afair clang isn't easily available on 10.6 anyhow)
But as far as I know, it is possible to package libc++ (and libc++abi which is needed by that) together with Qt into Qt Creator builds, and deploy on 10.6.
I can double-check if this is indeed true.

So, how important would *compiling* Qt Creator on 10.6 be, if it was still possible to deploy and run Qt Creator on 10.6 ?
