   Has anyone considered adding a new template constructor to shared_ptr
that takes an allocator as an extra template parameter? Something like

template <class Y, class D, class Alloc>
shared_ptr(Y *p, D d, Alloc alloc);

   This would allow users who need to specify allocators to do so, without
adding a new template parameter to the class itself.
