I apologize for that comment. It was not meant seriously, and is much more
antagonizing than funny, so please forget I ever wrote that.
On a serious note, we have nothing blocking activating C++11 in the Qt port of
WebKit. I prepared WTF and WebCore for C++11 with GCC months ago, and we
dropped support for platforms where it isn't available from support when C++11
became required in WebKit2. The only fallout will likely be the loss of the Qt
MIPS bot which is maintained by a third party and is too old.
