That would mean that shared memory in POSIX and Win32 would have
different lifetimes and your program wouldn't be portable, and you can
use the native API for this. My intention was to present a portable
solution that can be (maybe) standardized. But maybe I could present
additional non-portable classes for Windows if that's useful for Windows
