Am not reproaching them to be conservative, but to be inconsistent. On 
one side you have bleeding edge things (ptex, openvdb, alembic, and the 
hilarious 'lastest' FBX), on the others, years old basis like gcc4.8 or 
glibc2.13. Not to mention to ask for a compiler that only has 
*experimental* support of required c++ version…

Note that this would not prevent building blender over glibc2.13 imho, 
people just might have to disable some features. Here we are talking 
about official builds from Blender themselves only.
