Thank you for this suggestion. This is extremely interesting and I did not consider it myself before (because I never used lambda before).
Right now, I am mainly unsure about :

Because of the 'return value feature' that you described, It looks like there is something to dig there. For that reason, let me thank you a lot. I will take some time to study it, so that I will be able to share a more precise point of view about this (given my current schedule, it can take one week).

Best regards,

Pierre Morcello

What about using a lambda?
[&]() -> void


    std::cout << "this is never reached if test1==true or test2==true."
              << std::endl;
    // do something...

That kind of thing can also be made with macros instead of lambdas using
a similar technique to that of Boost.ScopeExit.

This also has the potential of being able to return values, which can be
pretty useful to initialize an object for example.
