How about this for a solution:

I can just remove my shared_ptr serialization implementation from the
serializaition package and you can make yours part of the share_ptr header
files. That would be fine from my point of view.

I have no idea - shared_ptr implementation code is opaque to me.

Hmm - I believe I concluded that the proposed solutions where inefficient
compared to my implementation and required essentially replicating
functionality already in the library. Honestly I don't remember now.
Essentially I saw my implemenation as very straight forward in that is was
identical to the way one does it for other user types. It was identical the
way its done for collections and this has worked out very well.
