Sorry, no offense intended, just humor. And yes, there are good and well
known reasons to avoid requiring placement new if possible. So ...

1) I have yet to see an explanation as to why this kind of pointer, as
   opposed to this particular implementation, *requires* a placement new.

2) If it does require a placement new, I have already pointed out that
   a smaller, faster, simpler, and more portable implementation might be
   had by taking advantage of the size-segregated storage techniques in
   boost::pool and other places.
