why doesn't shared_array allow the same conversions as shared_ptr, so that

boost::shared_ptr<int> ip;
boost::shared_ptr<const int> ip2(ip);

is allowed, but not

boost::shared_array<int> ip;
boost::shared_array<const int> ip2(ip);

Is it safe to use shared_ptr's with arrays if one supplies an array
deleter as a constructor argument?

Thanks in advance for any hint.
