Oh, I highly agree; just predicting what will happen.

My personal opinion right now is to have a clear "we do not
support FR < 2.2.x" on the web site, and refuse to answer any
questions until people upgrade. The questions about 1.x and 2.1.12
get pretty annoying.

In fact, maybe 1.1.8 should be removed from the front page and
download pages of as well. It looks like it's still
a valid version.

But in terms of -std=c11 in 3.1+, go for it.
