Hopefully copy only types can still be used. So say:

C++11 introduced "move only" types that can never be duplicated and must be 
moved, for example, std::unique_ptr<T>. This commit ensures that 
invokes such move operators when available, that is, when compiled using C++11 
or later, and when defined for the involved types. When compiled using 
C++98/C++03, the behavior is as before.
