I hope I can omit the empty construction, since some of my classes have many member variables. But on second thought, I should at least initialize the pointers to zero, to avoid undefined behavior in the destructor.

I hope I can omit the temporary, because two calls to swap are less efficient than a single call to swap. I can't find any second thought that forces me to create a temporary. Do I miss something?
