Yes, I believe that we can assume that the compiler provides a move
constructor for StoreIOBuffer. However, that move constructor does not
optimize any "object data copy" AFAICT. StoreIOBuffer is essentially a
POD so the entire object (about 20 bytes) gets "copied" and nothing can
be "moved" instead, even if we write something by hand. One cannot
"move" an integer or a raw pointer!

This is a new area for me, but I think that "move" methods optimize
copying of objects that have non-trivial copy constructors and
destructors. By definition, PODs do not have those. StoreIOBuffer does
not either. Am I missing something?

Thank you,
