Thanks, I'll consider it next time.
However if Boost doesn't have a clear memory management
concept, how can I guarantee that the next time around,
intrusive_ptr or something else in boost
won't start allocating memory under the covers.
It is perfectly legal in Boost.
How will I even know it, the documentation is completely
ignorant on the memory issues.

I never said that I am a huge allocators fan but at least
it seems that regex has one of the most consistent memory
management concepts in the library. :)
