Isn't this a good example of something scopeguard +
bind/lambda would be well suited to handle?
 IIRC Alexandrescu & Marginean's original CUJ article
about scopeguard investigated a case very similar to

So, my next questions is: What is the status of the
proposed boost::scope_guard?
Will it show up in the utils (soon)?
 I think scopeguard (and preferrably also janitor) in
the form Joe Swatosh posted a while ago would be very
suitable for inclusion in boost.
