I haven't looked real close, but doesn't the subsection titled
"Smart Pointers and const" in Item 28 of Scott Meyers
_More Effective C++_ contain a solution to this problem?
Basically, it describes SmartPtr<T> derived from
SmartPtrToConst<T> and SmartPtrToConst<T> containing
a union of const and non-const pointers to T. Unfortunately,
this would require changing shared_ptr.
