Yes. First, please go to the standards committee and get them to add
this to raw pointers:

   float* ptr = new float[128]; // too much typing!
   float* ptr(128); // much better!

When they have agreed to that, come back here and suggest that
scoped_array<> and shared_array<> are updated to match.

As I see it, scoped_array<> is the THIN wrapper around a raw pointer
that delete[]s it when it goes out of scope. And nothing more.

Regards, Phil.
