I adapted Lisa Lippincott and Marshall Clow's work on Nitrogen to create a library called poseven, based on the same 'nucleus' core library. p7::fd_t is an enum type for a file descriptor, and n::owned<p7::fd_t> and n::shared<p7::fd_t> are smart resources that work like unique_ptr and shared_ptr (loosely speaking) respectively. Much of it is about a decade old, early in my exposure to generic programming, though just recently I added p7::coprocess.

Interesting. Why are you using an enum to store the fd?
Do you think it'd be useful to move parts of this functionality into Boost?
