It's NOT "called auto". "auto" is for RAII, ie. destruction on scope exit. 
"auto" is just one way for the compiler to recognize a declaration. There 
are other keywords that trigger this (like "static"). Check my post in the 
"auto -> auto & var" thread, or do a search and find Walter's response to 
this issue.
