I can look into that. I took a bit of time yesterday and wrote an
template that extended the shared_array with member begin and end - it
really didn't take much to do. When it gets some more review at work, I
may submit what I've done to the list as a request for comment.
Making end() work means adding another data member for the array length,
and requiring that be set - I don't know if that would be deemed an
acceptable burden on shared_array, and it may be that making an
extension class available would be the right way to go.
