In the interest of the full dialectic, I encourage everyone tempted by 
new^ and all-degrees-of-freedom-including-hanging-yourself to look at 
this. It doesn't address some use-cases (constructor called differing 
from new'ed, notably), but perhaps that could be orthogonal via some MOP 
(if truly the hard/exceptional/native-legacy case).
