Not to split hairs here, but you could also write:

boost::shared_ptr<FILE> open_file( char const * name, char const * mode )
  if( FILE * f = fopen(name,mode) )
    return boost::shared_ptr<FILE>(f,fclose);
    throw fopen_error(name,mode);

and keep that in your "arsenal".

In fact, I think this function would be a good addition to boost so
it's part of everyone's arsenal. :)
