// STLDeleteContainerPointers()
// For a range within a container of pointers, calls delete
// (non-array version) on these pointers.
// NOTE: for these three functions, we could just implement a DeleteObject
// functor and then call for_each() on the range and functor, but this
// requires us to pull in all of algorithm.h, which seems expensive.
// For hash_[multi]set, it is important that this deletes behind the iterator
// because the hash_set may call the hash function on the iterator when it is
// advanced, which could result in the hash function trying to deference a
// stale pointer.

// the container. This function is suitable for use with a vector, set,

// If container is NULL, this function is a no-op.
// As an alternative to calling STLDeleteElements() directly, consider
// ElementDeleter (defined below), which ensures that your container's elements
// are deleted when the ElementDeleter goes out of scope.
