BTW, i have nothing against smart pointers, indeed i love them, my
comment was just because that i personally think that is better to
choose them when a project is starting from scratch. I haven't had
very good experiences adding shared pointers into existing code with
normal pointers, just that. About the whole boost thing, even i
personally agree as long as this not add more code complexity to the
end user (i mean beyond core developers)
