I also think it is useful for the case when you have more than one object
and you don't know how to perform a (no throw) move/swap of those objects.
That is, if you have:


How do you implement no-throw swapping without a transacted approach (so
that you can rollback state in case of an exception)?

The double buffer would allow you to have no-throw swap in the array even if
you don't have it in the objects themselves.
