While I thought auto_vector might be a good place to explore move
semantics, I see no reason that auto_vector should come to a standstill
while move semantics are worked out. But that appears to have
happened. Thus the new thread dedicated to move...

I'm a little concerned that this might require T to be default
constructible. I don't think we want to have move_construct require
that. But maybe I'm just misreading pseudo code.

Also I'm not clear how a given class would plug into move_construct
(provide its move semantics). Could you expound on that?
