FWIW, the worldview around where I am is similar to yours - very natural to
have common scaffolding for the two sorts of "compiler firewall" (to avoid
using the word pimpl!) - those with value semantics and those with
shared-const semantics. Your implementation seems a little better than ours
- the semantics are right there in the base class name making it hard to
miss for the user browsing the source.
