auto's dead. As for register, I'm not a Core Language guru and I can't find Standardese saying anything one way or the other (I see the Standardese that drops top-level cv-qualifiers), but both VC10 RTM and GCC 4.5.2 appear to believe that register does *not* affect the function type:

C:\Temp>type meow.cpp
#include <ios>
#include <iostream>
#include <ostream>
#include <typeinfo>
#include <type_traits>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    cout << boolalpha;
    cout << typeid(void (int, register int)).name() << endl;
    cout << is_same<void (int, register int), void (int, int)>::value << endl;

C:\Temp>cl /EHsc /nologo /W4 meow.cpp && meow
void __cdecl(int,int)

C:\Temp>g++ -Wall -Wextra -std=c++0x meow.cpp -o meow.exe && meow

C:\Temp>c++filt -t FviiE
void (int, int)
