I was going to play my usual "dependencies" tune, but it seems that
boost/ref.hpp is already entangled in the MPL web, and indirectly, via
addressof.hpp, in the type_traits web (only on MSVC 7.0, but bcp.exe doesn't
know that, and neither will most of the users.)

Maybe I should just give up.

shared_ptr from the rest of Boost. Must be a social circle thing.

It would be easy to untangle boost/utility/addressof.hpp; it only includes
add_pointer.hpp as part of a bug workaround by Dave Abrahams. Dave, do you
