// scoped_nsobject<> is patterned after scoped_ptr<>, but maintains ownership
// of an NSObject subclass object.  Style deviations here are solely for
// compatibility with scoped_ptr<>'s interface, with which everyone is already
// familiar.
//
// When scoped_nsobject<> takes ownership of an object (in the constructor or
// in reset()), it takes over the caller's existing ownership claim.  The
// caller must own the object it gives to scoped_nsobject<>, and relinquishes
// an ownership claim to that object.  scoped_nsobject<> does not call
// -retain.
//
// scoped_nsobject<> is not to be used for NSAutoreleasePools. For
// NSAutoreleasePools use ScopedNSAutoreleasePool from
// scoped_nsautorelease_pool.h instead.
// We check for bad uses of scoped_nsobject and NSAutoreleasePool at compile
// time with a template specialization (see below).
