This sounds like you're saying WRL and VMWare are using "a previous
version of out_ptr", but this is not the case - e.g. WRL doesn't use
"out_ptr". You mean they're using "something like out_ptr" (but tuned
to a specific need). e.g. WRL's CComPtr is specific for COM usage.

Is this referring to "out_ptr" here or again, something like it?
