I'm still not 100% convinced that we need this functionality in shared_ptr.
But if we do, it seems that the proper way to add it is to make shared_ptr
issue an unqualified call to
sp_accept_owner( this, p );
which the user will now be free to add to the namespace of *p or one of its
base classes. Your code, for example, would now have
shared_ptr<T> * p, shared_ptr_debugger * q );
in the namespace of shared_ptr_debugger, and another overload in the
namespace of C4 that would resolve the ambiguity.
