Ok, but how do I do it then? Modifing generated .cc code? In my case
that is not an option as generated C++ code is temporary and any
modification to it is lost after "make clean" (and I cannot change this
behaviour). It would be very nice (not to say "essential", in my case)
to have some way to force the use of boost::ref. Maybe it is dangerous
and pyste/boost cannot tell whether someone will destroy the referent or
not, but having it as an option would still be useful. Let me decide if
I want to take the risk, please...;-)And no, I cannot modify the
interfaces to pass a shared_ptr.
BTW, some time ago I send you a simple snippet of code with which I work
around unnamed enum problem, have you had any opportunity to look at it?
