How did it solve the 'smart_ptr to this' problem?
It seems to me like a Fundamental problem when using smart pointers.

I pretty much pushed for its use in my last project; I imagined that it
would be part of a future standard, and is already a de facto standard,
and I generally prefer standard solutions where they work. Regretfully,
it didn't work; there were too many times we needed to generate a smart
pointer from this. In the end, we simply used my old RefCntPtr (which
is very much like the one in Scott Meyers).
