I think in C++11 noncopyable should be considered deprecated and
generally avoided. It affects class hierarchy, adds an extra namespace
to ADL and may not be optimized away with EBO. I would even avoid it in
C++03 as well. It follows that nonmoveable makes no sense in C++11. Just
use the language features you have.
