It looks to me that there is no single implementation technique for
shared_ptr which is satisfactory for all uses.

So it looks like the partial specialization technique Dietmar
suggested is worthwhile. It can be made to make it work (always
selecting the default) with compilers which do not currently support
partial specialization.

Since the approach is easily extensible, people can add their own
favorites to the flavors Greg and I are planning to supply. It will
take us a week or so to get a release together; both of us need to
crank out some other (real) work first.

In the meantime, think about doing reviews of the two libraries we
have already.
