This doesn't really do much for me. shared_ptr<> already has
implicit conversion to shared_ptr<T const>, and the static_cast<>
version can't avoid the creation of temporaries, so you may as well
pay for the copy. And you still have to explicitly declare ptr<T const>
in the function declaration. So I don't see any benefit over
shared_ptr<> here.
