Proposal: Type inference for variable definition/initialization using the 'auto' keyword.

Sorry, can I ask what exactly patterns you mean.
I. e. is such approximation is correct (?)
pattern for auto : any variable definition.
pattern for 'usefull' auto: any variable definition with
templates^H^H^H^H^H type parameters on left side.
pattern for diamond : any variable definition with allocation
expression at right side.
If this is correct, I will add one to set of coin patterns.
