OK, people, I see that there are strong feelings both ways. So. lets
get practical. Lets see a show of hands that a default smart pointer
will have conversion like:

operator const void*() const throw() { return ptr; }

And with the BOOST_SMART_PTR_CONVERSION define it would upgrade cast to
the more dangerous, but sometimes required:

operator T*() const throw() { return ptr; }

As Dave said, this seems like a compromise satisfactory to all.
