Unfortunately I must say that the pimpl_ptr library will not be part of
Boost at this time. The results where decidedly against the library in
the proposed form. A few points about the library where clear:

* Many want to see a pimpl_ptr in Boost.

* The proposed design was considered to not do enough towards addressing
the handle-body idiom within C++.

* Some of the ideas, the policies, where both liked and disliked. Which
raised the specter of the lack of a policy pointer.

Hopefully we will see this idiom addressed in some near future.

Last, I must apologize for the late results. But I must thank Ronald for
the gentle prodding :-)
