If I was about to do it, I would do this:
1. Submit PR wiping out all traces of STXXL
2. Submit PR bumping required C++ version to C++17
with minimal code modernisation to enable compilation as C++17
3. Continue with series of manageable PRs modernising code to C++17
I honestly expect such PRs will be accepted as I see no practical
reasons to not to.
I should be able to offer my help in reviewing and testing the PRs,
as well as submitting some for the 3. part.
