Yep, that sounds like a good idea, but can that not be handled by the existing configure.cxx syntax?

BTW: how risky is it to replace libc++ on newer OS X versions which do in fact provide them?

And since we're talking about runtimes: is it even possible to upgrade the ObjectiveC runtime, as far as that is of any interest when you don't upgrade the rest of the SDK using it?
