Are there some guidelines about which C++ features we can use or not?
I think the biggest guideline so far is that people still want to build
gdb on systems with compilers that predate C++11, so we're stuck with
C++03 for the moment.
Perhaps some precisions about the coding style, for C++-specific
constructs (e.g. initializer lists).
List initialization is C++11, so it's out, at least for now.
Oh, I meant the list of members to initialize in a constructor (the list
after the colon), that's not C++11 I believe. I see it's all discussed
in the gcc coding convention page.
And to complete my answer on the original subject, I think it's fine to
wait until 7.12 is out before checking in anything that is C++-only.
The wait has been long already, a few weeks won't change much :).
