Proposals to add features to scoped_ptr or scoped_array have been
discussed in the past. Fortunately (for me), the bottom line has been
to keep these objects light. If adding a deleter would require storing
a pointer, then it increases its memory usage, and that makes it heavy.

If you want to add features, you could create a variation of these
classes, but I'll reiterate my request to keep the scoped_ classes light.

(I don't care about auto_ptr at the moment.)
