It's also worth mentioning that the shared_ptr classes have been
accepted for C++ Technical Report 1 and will be included in all future
C++ compiler suites. It is already in gcc 4.1.2.
If you don't want to "rely" on boost (or the vendor compiler), you
could probably just include the header in the mysql++ distro tarball.
