#include <boost/intrusive_ptr.h pp>

I'm trying to create an baseclass that will serve as a parent for reference
counted objects handled by boost::intrusiv e_ptr<>. The documentation
didn't provide much in the way of describing what the functions
intrusive_ptr_a dd_ref and intrusive_ptr_r elease should do, nor even what
their signatures should be. There is one comment that has me a bit unsure
about whether my approach is a good one:"On compilers that support
argument-dependent lookup, intrusive_ptr_a dd_ref and intrusive_ptr_r elease
should be defined in the namespace that corresponds to their parameter;
otherwise, the definitions need to go in namespace boost."

Note that my baseclass is util::Reference d, and my functions are
util::intrusive _ptr_add_ref, and util::intrusive _ptr_release. My hope is
that I can derive from these in other namespaces and rely on the fact that
the baseclass is in util to avoid the unspecified problems that would arise
if the parameter is not in a namespace corresponding to the functions.

Clearly OT! Why don't you ask at Boost?

That's the first time I ever heard that boost was OT on this news group.

From: ===Welcome to comp.lang.c++! Read this first.

"First of all, please keep in mind that comp.lang.c++ is a group for
discussion of general issues of the C++ programming language, as
defined by the ANSI/ISO language standard. If you have a problem that
is specific to a particular system or compiler, you are much more
likely to get complete and accurate answers in a group that specializes
in your platform."
