I think that Christian has a valid question that is not addressed by Modern
C++ Design:

What are the complexity requirements of the boost::shared_ptr<> member

He asks, if I understand correctly, not how boost::shared_ptr is currently
_implemented_, but how it's _defined_.

A question that will become more important if/when shared_ptr moves into

An interesting related question is "why does shared_ptr have use_count?"
