Yes and (possibly) no. ;)

Yes in the sense that it doesn't conform to the Standard (and in other ways
too - eg no reset).

(Possibly) no because it's based on a draft standard, and auto_ptr changed
quite a lot quite late. I *think* the behaviour is 'correct' according to
that, but I don't have the draft to check.


Anyone going to Oxford? Say hi.
