Are you sure? For instance, in Windows globals aren't merged
on DLL loading, so if you've got something like:

/*** foo.hpp ***/
template<typename T>
struct foo
  static T* get()
    T t;
    return &t;

/*** main.cpp ***/
#include "foo.hpp"

T* t1=foo<T>::get();

/*** dll1.cpp ***/
#include "foo.hpp"

T* t2=foo<T>::get();

you'll get different t1 and t2 values. I don't see how
you're able to prevent this behavior for the local static data
of singleton_manager.
