WIP: ENH: avoid potential HashPtrTable memory leaks (#1286)
in previous versions the HashPtrTable used a HashTable<T*> for its underlying storage and added additional routines for deallocating memory when items were deleted or the table was cleared.
This generally works well, but direct use of any HashTable<T*> removal methods without additional wrapping results in memory leaks.
The safer means is to use a container with its own memory management. For example, HashTable<autoPtr>.
Any memory cleanup now becomes automatic.
