Could you define a new shared_ptr templated CTOR which takes a pointer
to member:

    template<typename Member>
    struct shared_ptr
       template<typename Owner, Member Owner::*pm_type>
       shared_ptr(shared_ptr<Owner>* a_owner, pm_type a_pm)
       : px(a_owner.get()->a_pm), pn(???)

I haven't compiled this; hence, the syntax may not be right.
How would this compare with member_ptr, and the others?
