If I can get "smart references" i.e. operator.() I'd like to be
able to overload "sizeof(SmartReference<T>)" to return the
size of T, not the sizeof "SmartReference"
I think it will be necessary to determine the amount of raw memory
to allocate if you were to copy a smartReference. But
its been a long time since I tried messing with this.
At the time I was trying to solve the problem of how to you make
a proxy object behave exactly like the real object for all
users of the object.
Anyone else ever wish for this?
