This must predate the ratification of the standard:

"2.5.3: NULL-pointers vs. 0-pointers
[snip]  Indeed, according to the descriptions of the pointer-returning
operator new 0 rather than NULL is returned when memory allocation fails."

When new fails, it doesn't return anything, but rather throws an exception
now.  (Well, unless you use the (std::nothrow) syntax which I've never seen
used and in fact just found out about).  Oops, now it's my turn to document!

Anywhoo, tell you guys what:  I'll roll all four permutations and whoever
checks it in can pick which patch or patches they want ;-).
