debug_count

A utility class designed for debugging purposes. This is used in the ETL containers to check that all placement new'd
items have been destructed. When neither DEBUG or _DEBUG is defined then this class does nothing and will be optimised
away.

If the count is decremented below zero then an assert will be generated.
If the destructor for this class is called and the count is not zero then an assert will be generated.

Supports operators ++, --, +=, -=

    // Get the pointer to the item to pop.
