What is the pupose of the Deleter parameter in boost::shared_ptr?
It creates an illusion that I can control memory allocations in
shared_ptr, but the counter allocations are not customizable.
Would not it be better to remove the Deleter from shared_ptr and
always require to use 'new' just to be consistent
and not to fool users? :)
