Dear group,

is it possible to use smart_ptr with handles ( e.g. HWND, HBRUSH, HDC,
etc )? Wouldn't it be quite convenient to have something like a scoped
or shared resource? The idea came when I looked my OpenGL initialisation
code, where I have to free the resource explictly every time an error
occurs, which make the code somehow a little bit more difficult to read
and I though that it would be nice to have some kind of RAII mechanism
