Ya know what C++ is? Every time you have that niggling little feeling that a particular feature will come to no good, but for the life of you you can't explain to the suits why it'll come to no good, it's just that "ugh, this'll end up being a late night debugging session in 6 months or so coupled with the realization that several then mandatory features are mutally exclusive" feeling?

Yeah, C++ is all of those features, rolled into one language.

I was thinking more "Whoah! Watch where you point that thing!"

I do, however, appreciate the BOOST folks for giving me a set of managed pointer classes that do roughly what I want and that I've been able to shoehorn into this exceptionless platform I've been playing with.
