In addition to the safe bool included in the latest CVS version,
shared_ptr<> supports operator !.

Whenever a given class supports operator ! for boolan testing, you can
always use the 'double bang' idiom for testing 'true':

instead of: if (p) ...
write: if ( !! p ) ...

Using this, of course, might be contrary to the user's religion :-) since
it looks akward to the unaware eye; but it can be handy to know about it.
