We have announced only core language feature completeness, the library was
known to be incomplete.  And, I think for 4.9 the library C++11 support
is still meant to be experimental because of the ABI issues, where we know
we'll need to change std::string, std::list etc., but are waiting for
Dodji's ABI verification stuff before we are confident we can do all those
changes safely.
