#1590: shared_ptr documentation inconsistency
 Reporter: fmhess | Owner: pdimov
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.36.0 | Component: smart_ptr
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 The default shared_ptr constructor, which creates an empty shared_ptr,
 gives "use_count() == 0" as a post condition. However, the documentation
 use_count says it returns "an unspecified nonnegative value when *this is
 empty". I'd like it to return 0 for an empty shared_ptr, as that appears
 be the only way to distinguish an empty shared_ptr from one sharing
 of a null pointer.
