What template parameter? That's not a part of the name.
Template parameters, just like function arguments are never
a part of the name. You do not need to read the header file
to get the essence. The name itself should indicate the function
of the class without looking elsewhere.

managed<>? What is managed? ... answer: take a look at
the template parameter and you'll see what I mean. I'm
sorry, that doesn't make sense.
