The topic wasn't brought up during the Thirdparty SIG meeting.  The
approximation of that topic is that Lucid is the current lower
watermark (gcc 4.4) for integration in Fuerte and Groovy will move to
Oneiric (gcc 4.6).

GCC C++ 11 status (still 'experimental'): http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cxx0x.html

It's always possible to reconvene the SIG to discuss C++ 11 more
specifically; I'm coordinator but I do not pretend to be knowledgeable
in that issue.
