It is only a problem with non-intrusive implementations, like
boost::shared_ptr. I don't particularly like the global pointer map

Intrusive implementations convert between raw and smart with ease.

FWIW, I have encountered the 'this' problem myself - once; I used a custom
intrusive pointer to solve it. In all other cases I still use shared_ptr.
