Well, I'm not sure it's actually any more informative. Saying "it'll
be done when X is done" is IMO no better than saying "it'll be done
when it's done"; YMMV. Pointing out that GCC is a co-operative
project has to be done from time to time. Some people seem to think
that there is a GCC master planner who hands out tasks to the hordes
of willing drones.
"Full support for C++11" is simply an exercise in box ticking; there
is still some of C99 missing because no-one cares about it or uses it.
