Summary: provide detach() function for shared pointer

Initial Comment:
I suggest that we should provide a new method T* detachPtr() for shared_ptr to let the shared_ptr pass owner ship to other fuctions or applications.

It is a comman case that user will have to let the share_ptr give up the owenership of the objec, pass the object to other application let that application take care the objcet's life. But there is no method to do so.
