This is where it's going to hurt. c++ standard is currently evolving *fast*,
see c++14. Many critical apps will/are add/ing c++14 toolchain requirement in
order to be compiled. For instance, GPU shaders does us llvm... they kind of
force you to have the latest llvm to compile shaders (API instability, features
for latest opengl, bugs of course).  Modern WWW renderers will follow very
probably. Blender?

With only modern c++ toolchains written using modern c++ toolchains, they are
basically killing any C toolchain on the medium term (from a standard usage

c++ language/stdlib and ABI are just *massive* and very hard to get right, that
due to their insane complexity. Playing cat and mouse with the standard is
going to be really a lot of work.
