Maybe the Microsoft *vs* root_ptr way of looking at things is wrong. Herb
Sutter presented an idea (never stated it was all his) and wrote in his
words a "Toy" implementation, with no promiss of going beyond this, to
demonstrate that idea. It sounds to me like an invitation for some-one to
implement the real deal. That some-one could be you. So why don't you
rename root_prtr (again :-) ) to deferred_ptr and incorporate any (other)
ideas in HS's, that you might have missed, and I guess you will have an
early supporter.
