/*
 * See http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2014/n4189.pdf for a
 * standards-track version of this.
 *
 * Error handling can be complex when various actions need to be performed that
 * need to be undone if an error occurs midway. This can be handled with a
 * collection of boolean state variables and gotos, which can get clunky and
 * error-prone:
 *
 * {
 *   if (!a.setup())
 *       goto fail;
 *   isASetup = true;
 *
 *   if (!b.setup())
 *       goto fail;
 *   isBSetup = true;
 *
 *   ...
 *   return true;
 *
 *   fail:
 *     if (isASetup)
 *         a.teardown();
 *     if (isBSetup)
 *         b.teardown();
 *     return false;
 *  }
 *
 * ScopeExit is a mechanism to simplify this pattern by keeping an RAII guard
 * class that will perform the teardown on destruction, unless released. So the
 * above would become:
 *
 * {
 *   if (!a.setup()) {
 *       return false;
 *   }
 *   auto guardA = MakeScopeExit([&] {
 *       a.teardown();
 *   });
 *
 *   if (!b.setup()) {
 *       return false;
 *   }
 *   auto guardB = MakeScopeExit([&] {
 *       b.teardown();
 *   });
 *
 *   ...
 *   guardA.release();
 *   guardB.release();
 *   return true;
 * }
 *
 * This header provides:
 *
 * - |ScopeExit| - a container for a cleanup call, automically called at the
 *   end of the scope;
 * - |MakeScopeExit| - a convenience function for constructing a |ScopeExit|
 *   with a given cleanup routine, commonly used with a lambda function.
 *
 * Note that the RAII classes defined in this header do _not_ perform any form
 * of reference-counting or garbage-collection. These classes have exactly two
 * behaviors:
 *
 * - if |release()| has not been called, the cleanup is always performed at
 *   the end of the scope;
 * - if |release()| has been called, nothing will happen at the end of the
 *   scope.
