I’m about to land a patch that will require variadic templates, and I plan to do the same thing for range-based for loops. These are both supported by GCC 4.6.

Going forward I’d really like us to start using template aliases, which is a 4.7 feature. If that’s a problem we can hold off that for the time being.
