I haven't been closely monitoring this thread, though I did note its existence.
Fwiw, I was never thrilled with my C++03 emulation of unique_ptr. I don't recall exactly what doesn't work. But I think I'm correct when I say that it does not succeed in completely emulating a C++11 unique_ptr. There may be clues as to what doesn't work here: http://home.roadrunner.com/~hinnant/unique_ptr.zip
