I missed that shared_count takes checked_deleter<U>() in:

         template <typename U>
         explicit shared_storage(U* p)
         : pointee_(p), count_(p, checked_deleter<U>(), p)

which does contain information about the pointee_. OTOH, it
also has an error: 3 args instead of 2. This, as well as
other errors, are corrected in the obvious zip file at:

I'll be happy to upload these to the sandbox with David's permission;
