Hao and I continued this off-list for a bit more, and that is indeed legit
once you use '-std=c++0x' with a recent g++ version.  Eg I just tried

  std::vector<double> y{ 1.1, 2.2};

and this constructor-initialization form (which I hadn't seen, or forgotten
about) passes fine.

Too bad we can't yet use -std=c++0x on CRAN submissions....
