You seem to be confused between a pointer that is const and a pointer that
points to an object that is const.
A pointer that is const -- means the pointer can not be re-seated:
T * const
A pointer that points to an object that is const -- means the object can not
be modified (only const member functions, etc.):
const T *
A pointer that is const and points to an object that is const:
const T * const
const scoped_ptr<const T>
Your proposal seems to blur and mix these.
