[geos-devel] GeometryPtr or ...

My take... Using a typedef might make sense until std:: gets an
implementation that is successfully battle tested and generally adopted.
std::auto_ptr miss the boat in many ways.  std::unique_ptr has staying
power and most new C++ coders are expected to know and use it.  So I think
hiding it behind a typedef is usually a hindrance to the reader.  I've
tried typedefs with it several times and it generally hurt more than it
helped.  And the cases where it seemed to help start going away with C++14
and C++17 IMHO.
