Well, you can use an auto_ptr to pass ownership across scopes, changing the
effective behavior of the object being managed. So the question is, does the
a class such as nonallocatable prevent abuse, or will it merely be an
inconvenience for those who want to do valid things unanticipated by the
original designer? I guess it depends on your target audience?
