Indeed but this is a processor speed issue since the time taken is
constant as far as the smart pointer is concerned but GC still needs
halting the application to collect once in a while if the GC heap isn't
large enough.

No problem, but if this isn't defined yet perhaps "new_shifted<A>(...)"
can be used instead because "make" is a prefix used for temporary
objects allocated on the stack.

I wouldn't want to miss anything this time so anybody please CC me for
