P005R2 proposes a new clause that allows implementations to keep using
names that used to be in the standard:
188.8.131.52.x Zombie names [zombie.names]
In namespace std, the following names are reserved for previous
standardization: auto_ptr, bind1st, bind2nd, binder1st, binder2nd,
mem_fun, mem_fun_ref, mem_fun_t,mem_fun1_t, mem_fun_ref_t,
mem_fun1_ref_t, const_mem_fun_t, const_mem_fun1_t,
const_mem_fun_ref_t, const_mem_fun1_ref_t, not1, not2,
unary_negate,binary_negate, ptr_fun, pointer_to_unary_function,
pointer_to_binary_function, random_shuffle, unary_function, and
It is unspecified whether function objects in the C++ standard library
additionally provide the following typedefs: result_type,
argument_type, first_argument_type, andsecond_argument_type.
