This is also what N1851 proposes, with a different spelling:
make_shared_object, make_shared_object_with_alloc, make_shared_array. It's
an additional argument in favor of new_shared_ptr instead of new_<
shared_ptr >, if nothing else. There's also the alternative of
shared_ptr<X>::create( a1, ..., aN ).
