// AutoReset is useful for setting a variable to some value only during a
// particular scope.  If you have code that has to add "var = false;" or
// "var = old_var;" at all the exit points of a block, for example, you would
// benefit from using this instead.
//
// NOTE: Right now this is hardcoded to work on bools, since that covers all the
// cases where we've used it.  It would be reasonable to turn it into a template
// class in the future.
