Modernize to c++11

The use of auto

 run-clang-tidy.py -checks=-*,modernize-use-auto  -header-filter=.* -fix 

The automatic fix use auto in cases where static_cast is used:

 - int a = static_cast<int>(something);
 + auto a = static_cast<int>(something);

No much gain on this particular case, however, when using iterators and other verbose types, it really helps readability.

The change should be discussed with the main developers to reach a consensus. VTK and ITK are using auto in a lot of cases.


Move not implemented constructors and assignment operators to the public interface

Now that we use = delete, we don't need the constructors and assignment operator to be in the private interface. Moving them to the public interface is better. Including better integrations with IDE's.
