[PATCH] Enable C++11

I think we need to do a bit more work here before submitting anything like
this. I had planned to do it, but if you want to do it, the minimum I think
we should do first:

- Document what versions of which compilers we're trying to support as host
- Add at least some checks to try to error early and clearly at configure /
cmake time on host compilers we don't really support (with a flag to bypass
- Get the build bots upgraded so that these changes don't cause the bots to
just die immediately -- there are several where it would.
- Document the C++11 features which we think are supported by these
compilers (mostly MSVC restrictions I suspect)
- Throw the switch in a way that folks can locally disable it for a while
- Then make it permanent and expose C++1y

Does that make sense?
