I think it`s neither, but a CRTP class implementing the "pointer concept":

struct my_ptr
   : smart_ptr_facade<my_ptr,...>{
   void set(T *rhs){ ptr=rhs; }
   T *get() const{ return ptr; }
   T *ptr;

=> my_ptr has ptr semantics, including operator->, operator=, ...

iterator_facade simplifies implementing iterators a lot, so could this
class for pointers, and other facades, e.g. a vector_facade that
implements the std::vector interface in terms of 3 or 4 user-supplied
