I couldn't agree with you more, but I have no idea how to implement it. :-(

On the other hand, maybe we want that, because it's a good way to deal with the compatibility problem that we have on non-Apple platforms.  Users could tell us that they're targeting e.g. libsupc++ v4.8, and we could tell them in response that sized allocation isn't supported.  And if we get them to tell us that, rather than "I have sized allocation support" specifically, it sets us up well to solve similar problems in the future.

You mean that we may provide a option `-fc++-runtime` likes `-fobjc-runtime`, or extend `-stdlib` to specify version number in the form of  `-stdlib=libsupc++-v4.8`?
