If it's more to your palate, replace all the keywords I proposed with
std::[keyword]. Something like:

#include <noreentry>

int main(void)
    MyClass a;
    MyClass b( std::noreentry_linked_to(b) );

Personally I don't see the merit in opting for non-keywords over
keywords if the implementation of the non-keyword requires compiler
support. I find it borderline asinine that the keyword 'typeid' cannot
be used without including a header file -- I would have thrown a can
of tear gas in the window at the committee that day if I'd been aware
what they were plotting.
