I agree. I use both of these classes for 2 reasons: (1) they delete
their objects in any case that they go out of scope (exceptions, too);
and (2) I don't have to worry about anyone writing code that will
circumvent this behavior (and produce a bug or leak that I will have to
Please, don't change the behavior of either of these simple and valuable

subclass with a different name.
