You should not worry. The compiler generates correct code even if
the function is inlined (at least the ones I use do.)
I'm not sure about this part, but I think it's possible that in some
cases (maybe when exception handling is involved,) the compiler
might not be able to inline the function at all.
I think if any compiler did not generate destructors for inlined
functions, the results would be obvious in the piles of code that
wouldn't function at all.
