intermodule_holder performs a way more expensive static initialization
process than static_holder (basically, it creates a shared memory
area and interprocess mutex for communication between the different
modules of the program. It only affects static initialization, though,
the rest of operations (flyweight creation and passing around) are exactly
the same as with static_holder.
Another reason for not including this is that Boost.Interprocess (on which
intermodule_holder depends) is not universally supported, so making
intermodule_holder the default would complicate things for some

Any particular example you wished you had more info about? I can
try to improve that if you point me to the improvable parts.
