I hope my previous message clarifies things a bit. The big difference
between .NET and C++ is garbage collection. Many patterns/idioms that
work well in a GC environment just don't work or get more complex,
less intuitive, etc. in C++ where objects and data can be zapped
while operations that were using them are still pending.
