I can't imagine that it will work.
Anyway, I could store an delete-functor (calls allocator::destroy() +
deallocate()) in context_base as shared_ptr does and call this delete
functor from intrusive_ptr_release. Let's see if it will work.

moveable-only - I mean to derive from boost::noncopyable

I'll take a look into the docu
