I guess that I wrote the code without noticing unique()s existence.
However, I now know of it (thanks ;-) and have checked the code in

    bool unique() const // nothrow
        return use_count() == 1;

I find that this is exactly what I use myself, so will modify my code
to use shared_ptr<>::unique().
