Interesting... when Andrei Alexandrescu and Petru Marginean introduced
ScopeGuard, this was one of their primary motivating examples, and my
initial reaction was that, indeed, biting the bullet and writing a separate
File class might be a better option.

Eliminating resource management as a motivation leaves me wondering what are
the primary uses for scope[d]_guard that you have in mind?
