If you wish to use scoped_ptr as a pointer to implementation you should
always define (in .cpp file) destructor for outer class even if it is empty
destructor. This allows compiler to generate (instantiate) proper destructor for
shared_ptr<YourImplementationClass>. Otherwise it instantiates such
destructor in scope where YourImplementationClass is incomplete and
you receive said errors. It is normal common practice to define empty
constructor in such cases.

shared_ptr does not have problem like this, but it is more

Best regards,
