I updated the patch to replace ignore_enable_shared_from_this_tag with
this approach. Which means that shared_ptr no longer contains any traces
of enable_shared_from_this[_light], only some generally useful
extensions, which is IMHO a good sign.

I also replaced the name sp_notify_observer with sp_accept_owner.

Since the pointer to the deleter could always be retrieved by
sp_accept_owner via the first parameter, the only benefit is that the
deleter's type D is passed, right? To me it seems cleaner if
sp_accept_owner should not have any direct link to the way *how* the
shared_ptr was created, just the fact that it has been created. IMHO it
should says: "This shared_pointer now owns this object" and not "This
shared_ptr now owns this object and was created with this deleter". I
simply fail to see what this should be good for, but maybe you have a
use case in mind?

Regards, Daniel
