That's just it, though. They are not. Not reliably.

Yah, clearly there's a problem with the language implementation (and the definition that is incomplete, leaving too much leeway to the implementation). Clearly the way to go is fix the bug, which has been preapproved and of raised gravity. That would obviate the entire "implementation has a bug therefore language does not support RAII" line of reasoning. Thanks Stefan for looking into this! -- Andrei

This is going to be tricky without breaking code which worked around the bug.
