:-) In general, I agree with you. 1024-th smart pointer is 1023-rd
wheel reinvented. But The Best Wheel is still to be found.
Nevertheless, thanks for reply, even for the such one.
--- refc_ptr<T> is not a science-intensive implementation like Loki::SmartPtr<>. It rather oriented to practical needs. The following syntax is employed: refc_ptr<U> spU = new shell_xx<U>(args); where shell_xx<T> is one of "reference counting shells for objects of type T". With some "shells" refc_ptr<T> is the same as boost::shared_ptr<T>/weak_ptr<T>, with others - is similar to boost::intrusive_ptr<T>, or to shifted_ptr<T>, etc. All with the only class refc_ptr<T>; all types of reference counting are almost transparent for a client.
