I'd argue that this *is* added complexity.

Every layer you use to abstract away pointers and other C++ arcana removes you that much further from what your code is doing.

And you know, std::auto_ptr works fantastic, until it doesn't. And when it doesn't you better know exactly how it's spec'd to function.

Things can be complicated and easy to use at the same time. Hell, that describes the average IoT device these days.
Real programmers use butterflies
