// AutoResetValue 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.
// This should be obvious, but note that the AutoResetValue instance
// should have a shorter lifetime than the scoped_variable, to prevent
// writing to invalid memory when the AutoResetValue goes out of
// scope.
