I don't really see how this implements the pimpl idiom. There is no method
forwarding in the wrapper class, so In order for users to invoke methods,
the pimpl's interface must be publicly exposed. This seems to me to run
contrary to the enitre reason for pimpls in the first place.

It looks like more of a singleton/creation policy implementation than
anything else.
