then you're looking for a deleter, as implemented by boost shared_ptr.
I'm not sure what the benefit would be of implementing a deleter for
scoped_ptr. deleters execute arbitrary code when the contained object is
deleted. for a scoped_ptr, that code already has a place to go: a destructor.
scoped_ptr just automates the common behaviour of a destructor, deleting an
exclusively owned pointer. if you need to do something else, you can do so in
a destructor.
