Could you eliminate the tabs and reformat to something like
75 or 80 columns to ease reading. An example is
in http://boost-consulting.com/vault/Memory. Also, boost
convention is .hpp (or hxx or something like that) extension
instead of .h.

I notice policy_ptr has a weak_ptr class. Does axter smart_ptr
has something similar to handle cycles in pointer graph?

I've compiled and run the policy_ptr tests with g++.

Could this be due to shared_ptr having two refcounts and smart_ptr
having just one?
Of course you mean weak_ptr? Does this support mean cycles can occur
if they're broken by the smart_ptr's version (if any) of
