        Don't be silly. If the design is that close to being
able to use shared_ptr on a thread object, the design has
succeeded. No one wanted to force you to use the low level
non-copyable thread objects, rather, the design _should_
make it easy to wrap those objects in a 'standard' ref counting

        So the question is: if you do that, does it actually
work? How close is 'smart_ptr<thread>' to a good implementation
of 'thread_ref'?? Is it good enough to actually add as a typedef
to the thread library?? :-)
