We'll have to make that not the default for the time being then. Having cmake lie isn't an option. We might know about this non-intuitive behavior, but most people aren't going to read the cmake files and would just assume it worked. We shouldn't do a warning or other message either. There usually isn't a reason to look at the cmake output unless it fails.

Yeah, this is fine. C++11 is probably a safe default these days.
