I don't remember seeing anything about this on the lldb dev lists. If we're going to build GitHub lldb this way it would be worth raising the suggestion on the lldb-dev as well.
It's very likely llvm won't switch to C++14 until ubuntu 14.04 will be
unsupported (next April), but, given lldb doesn't have the same
bootstrap problems that clang has, probably It could be moved earlier
to C++14 (also the llvm.org bits).
