Subject: [boost] Serializing a shared_ptr

If the 'shared_ptr' itself defines the required operations (as it should),
there is no need for a separate 'shared_ptr_id' type. Also note that you
can get a 'void *' from a 'shared_ptr' by calling the 'get' member function
and casting the result to 'void *'.
