I wasn't thinking about that kind of odr-unuse when reviewing your
patch, so I am starting to think that perhaps it's not worth
distinguishing unevaluated contexts or not in the diagnostic. :-( If
we could do it, then great (we seem to be able to do it for regular
variable use: http://coliru.stacked-crooked.com/a/4bde9b5daf48956a),
but if not, then I think we should just go back to the original
wording that says it's not required to be captured (in all cases, not
distinguishing odr-use) and put in a FIXME with the test cases that
could have an improved diagnostic (including the test case talked
about here, which we should add). What do you think?
