BTW, I forgot to mention that new_ is a great idea! :)

Many years ago there was a CUJ article presenting a Handle class which was
essentially like a share_ptr(new_) but built in a single class.
One of the strong points of that class was precisely that it totally avoided
raw pointers.
I liked it a lot and wonder ever since why it wasn't widely adopted.
Now the "handle instead of pointer" paradigm can start to become best
practice as it should have been for such a long time.
