Re: C++ PATCH: PR 20599 (1/3)

Given that we're only considering features that have been written into the C++0x Working Draft for this -std=c++0x(-draft?) mode, I imagine that the chance of features being removed is rather small. 50 + members of the committee have said "yes" to a feature at least two times, usually with more than a year in between, before it gets into the working draft. It would take a significant event for them to change their minds.
