Well, then, there's a whole lot of egg on my face.  I guess that since
most of the classes that I maintain predated this, I never noticed that
the newer classes were using smart pointers like this, hence I assumed
that it wasn't possible.  Because in my mind, I just couldn't image that
such an important bit of code hygiene would be possible and at the
same time not be used throughout VTK.
