Yes, me too, I am very interested by such library if it could provide, in
addition to relative pointer, a STLAllocator that is working with "raw pointer"
allocator scheme.

By the way, there will be a small additional problem to solve for the library
to be complete: the reference of shared objects placed in the shared memory
with virtual functions.
As such, the smart pointer will have to update the virtual table on each
reference to the shared object before returing back the "raw pointer" on the
object to the caller!! (unless the underlying OS garantee to map each instance
of a shared library at the same base address of each process...Ugh...)
