I was anxious to get beta 1 out the door primarily so we can start the
process of testing and refinement sooner, not so much to hasten the
final release. I'm happy to keep MySQL++ in beta (or gamma, or RC...)
status as long as changes of this sort keep coming in.

Indeed! I actually mentioned wanting to do this in the initial
announcement of RefCountedPointer, and had it on the wishlist for a
while, but ran into some block and dropped it. I'm very happy you've
found a way around whatever it was I ran into. :)
Applied mostly as-is, with the standard sort of minor tweaks.
