The shared_ptr constructor taking a pointer is a template, and doesn't
accept the literal 0. Use the default constructor for now.

Probably not a defect, but an inconvenience nevertheless. I don't see any
downsides at the moment so I'll probably enable construction from 0 after
the release when I work out the details.
