To try to make this clearer, I added the following to the docs (ditto
for shared_array). The first sentance was already there:

Class shared_ptr meets the CopyConstuctible and Assignable
requirements of the C++ Standard Library, and so can be used in C++
Standard Library containers. Note that the Standard Library's
default Compare template parameter (class Compare = less<Key>) will
not work for shared_ptr as it requires operator< which is not defined
for shared_ptr. The functor less< boost::shared_ptr<T> > is supplied
instead (compiler must support partial specialization).
