You can't access SmartPtr::storage_policy in a member declaration since
SmartPtr is incomplete at this point.

You can access it in the member function body, though.

Tying this to my previous question, what is the reason of the 'pointer_type'
(over)generalization? When is pointer_type not T*? std::allocator flashes?
