Sure, an atomic operations library might be useful, and we could perhaps use
it to implement the smart_ptr library. I don't think anyone's working on it,
but it seems like a fine idea.

In the mean time, Peter made just enough to implement the smart_ptr library
with; it's good to have a thread-safe smart pointer.
