Maybe we need something with a mixture of features from scoped_ptr and
shared_ptr. scoped_ptr does everything that I need for a pimpl, except
that it can't delete the incomplete implementation type. shared_ptr
can delete the incomplete implementation, but it has the unneeded
overhead of reference counting and thread safety issues. So, can the
incomplete deletion feature of shared_ptr be extracted and added to
scoped_ptr? I have just had a quick look at the shared_ptr
implementation to see how deletion works, but it's too clever for me to understand....
