I've ran into this before, and there are some old posts on the Mailing
List about this. I can't remember the solution off the top of my
head, so you may want to do a search, but I'm pretty sure there's no
portable way around this.

The big problem is that PageCache::allocator_type will still be
identical to your typedef, and get_allocator won't help because you
won't know the correct type to cast to.
