Hi Peter,

I just took your implementation
( for shared_ptr and
use it now in win32gui (upcoming v1.4.2). Using Interlocked* for win32
totally rocks!

 From my tests - Interlocked* are very fast. They're about twice as slow
as a raw increment (or my tests are wrong;)).

 From what I see - I think you can certainly merge them into
Maybe users can select the old version or this Interlocked* version with
a certain macro - like BOOST_SHARED_PTR_USE_INTERLOCKED.

Also, why not including windows.h directly, like this:
#include <windows.h>

 From my tests it seems your version as is now fails to link for gcc
(unresolved external _InterlockedIncrement/_InterlockedDecrement).
However, if #including <windows.h> and use
InterlockedIncrement/Decrement - they work.
