So perhaps the other guy should make his sharing policy
of his C interface clear enough for you to follow?

Failing that you should probably download the free Boehm
garbage collector or buy the Geodesic Systems memory
manager, unless you want to do the platform-dependent
coding required to distinguish pointers to objects of
static, auto, and dynamic storage duration. If boost
had such code for enough platforms we could use it for
smarter pointers. Until then shared_ptr just isn't
going to work for you.

No, it won't :) foo() dosn't take a shared_ptr.
It is the topic of this discussion that foo()
takes plain pointers not shared_ptr<>, see the
Unfortunately the other guy decided
that foo() interface must support C as well
and we cannot change it.
