Thanks, I didn't know this proposal!

But I do not think it allows me to freely "memcpy", as elison depends on
compiler optimization and I do not know result of it.

It seems that having "bitcopies" constructor does not guarantee empty
destructor, nor lack of side effects of destructing empty object. It had
to be found by compiler during optimization.

Correct me if I am wrong, but if I was a library programmer, I wouldn't
be able to find if I am allowed to memcpy of given class or not. Solely
having "bitcopies" constructor is not enough.
