[Boost-docs] Visual Studio 2012 .natvis visualization for boost::shared_ptr

The wiki page at
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/DebuggerVisualizers (with
its link to the existing debug visualizers in the boost svn repository) was
the closest thing I found to ownership of debug visualizers. If this is not
the correct way to make this submission will you please help me find the
appropriate course of action.

I'd like to submit a Visual Studio 2012 .natvis file for visualizing
boost::shared_ptr and boost::weak_ptr within Visual Studio 2012. The
.natvis file is a replacement visualization scheme to the autoexp.dat file
as described in

I should always note, For consistency with the visualizations of
Microsoft's std::shared_ptr and std::weak_ptr I have based these
visualizations heavily on the visualizations that Microsoft have provided
in stl.natvis in the VS2012 distribution. I have been unable to find any
copyright notice for the Microsoft visualizations and am therefore unsure
whether these are suitable for distribution as part of boost.
