I'd be OK with that personally, but the question is whether
any gcc 4.9 or 5.x users are using plugins.  That's a bit above
my pay grade.  Kees?  Do we have any data on that? (All I know
is that there is at least one, because they tripped over the GCC bug
that prompted the second patch)

I chose 1100 so that everything from 4.9 to 10 would keep getting
handed gnu++98 the way they had been, and only change it for
gcc11.
