+1. The reasons why we haven't yet switched LLVM to c++17 do not apply to a
brand new frontend, since it's effectively all about not disrupting current
users, and a brand new frontend does not yet have those.

So, IMO, there's no reason f18 cannot have more stringent requirements at
the time of its introduction, and then going forward it should follow along
with the rest of the project's minimum toolchain requirements, after those
eventually meet and surpass f18's initial requirements.
