That is not correct. That syntax was part of the review version, but not
  the final interface. You would have to do

v.push_back( new int(4) );

Also, you don't have to rely on ADL at all. The Cloable Concept relies
on ADL, but the CloneAllocator concept does not. So implement your own
CloneAllocator thereby also specifying how you want to delete objects.
