  I'm pressed for time, but I never said that the plugin can't
make it into the official builds. I said that on systems that
lack the necessary C++11 runtime, it would fail to load.
That's a different issue altogether. I will explain all of
this in more detail when I have the time on Monday since it seems
there are some misunderstandings here.
