This simplest solution is to use std::auto_ptr. First of all it's a
standard C++ template - no external library dependencies and no custom
objects (with new API to learn). Secondly it holds no problems of
reference counting as it is just a pointer with ownership.

If reference counting then I'm only for boost::shared_ptr - simple,
clean, with std-like api and a good licence.
