Just tried the experiment, albeit with slightly old versions.

As of gcc 4.4 (with -std=gnu++0x) and Boost 1.47, it looks like 
Boost.Python doesn't even recognize std::shared_ptr as any kind of smart 
pointer, let alone an equivalent to boost::shared_ptr.

That's definitely going to need fixing in the near future.
