  Oh, sorry... I have not replied because I agree with you and could not
think of anything useful to give back to the conversation. :-) I guess I
should have nodded...

   As to the actual shared_count_132.hpp change... If someone can do it
- I am all for it... I guess I am just too much of a coward to do it
myself. :-)) Fear of way too many undocumented relations to other code
that I have no way of testing... and of not having enough time to
properly deal with all the feedback/anger resulting from the change. :-)
I would be happy to review it though...

   Best regards,
