Are there any plans to remove the deprecated std::auto_ptr from Ice?

Given that auto_ptr will only be deprecated in the upcoming C++0x standard (it's not a final standard yet -- only a draft standard), and that the vast majority of our customer use compilers that do not implement this new standard yet, we will probably not remove it until nobody uses pre-C++0x compilers anymore (which will probably take many years).
We will eventually add conditional code that uses unique_ptr instead of auto_ptr (along with other C++0x features), but at present, this is not high on our list of priorities.
