It depends what you mean by "refer to the same object". You can use
!(p1<p2) && !(p2<p1) with either shared_ptr or weak_ptr, which will
tell you if they manage the lifetime of the same instance (or are both
empty), but that doesn't necessarily mean that shared_ptr::get would
return the same pointer for both.
