I have the same interest. I'd love to know what the global declaration
is "helping" work. I have the intuition that it is not necessary in any
way if you properly account for ADL.

Can you point at an explanation of _what purpose_ is served, how, by
having ::impl_ptr in the global namespace? I'm happy to toy with it and
possibly create a PR.

In the light of that, it would help if there were tests.
