Here is an alternative to shared_ptr:
This is my version of an atomically thread-safe reference counting that
covers both basic and strong thread-safety models. Parts of it can also be
used in a signal handler, because it has 100% lock-free weak
increments/decrements' and pointer swap operations. It amortizes lock
actions from the first strong reference to an object X, down to the
drop-to-zero condition of object X. What do you think?
