My local intrusive pointer is almost exactly the same. I suspect there is
a lot of consensus about the fundamentals.

I use AddRef/Release instead of add_ref/release. My names are compatible
with Microsoft's OLE, a parochial concern which boost probably does not
share. I'd gladly change them. If we use non-member functions, adapter
functions like:

    inline void add_ref( MyIntrusiveBaseClass *p ) {

may help, too. I doubt there will be any problem.
