From my experience, you don't because at that point you would use some
other kind of pointer. Most likely a reference counted pointer that can
travel across DLL boundaries.
I think we all have to keep in mind the scope of this utility. It not
meant to solve all the pointer uses. There's another utility that people
keep asking for, the traits pointer.
