The one place where we'd need to be careful is with LLDB, which imports Swift headers; if Swift is going to move to C++14, then Swift-LLDB probably has to as well. LLDB folks, what do you think?

The current Ubuntu LTS (16.04) has clang 4 which supports C++14. libstdc++ claims C++14 compliance in the 4.9 release. That is available in Xenial (16.04) as well. So, I believe that the dependency issue should not be a problem.

Joe mentioned that there was some interest in switching the rest of swift to C++14 as well. I figured that I would just start a thread here to determine if this is okay to do globally rather than just specifically for the Windows builds to ensure that we can build the Windows components.
