I don't know about Intel 10.1 or vacpp, but gcc 4.3.4 only has rvalue
references in C++0x mode.

It's the NRVO optimization --- the named object is constructed directly
in the return value rather than copied. Many compilers do the
optimization, but they are supposed to check for an accessible copy
constructor anyway.

The compilers it works on must skip the required check for an accessible
copy constructor, so they are not strictly conforming to C++98, but in
this case it's a bonus. In C++0x this is also required to work if the
object being returned has an accessible move constructor.
