That's apples and oranges.

I do agree in principle with the idea of `shared`, I just want a way to

to promote.

__gshared on the other hand is just dispensing with the `shared` system 
altogether and giving up the protections it offers. Furthermore it only 
works for global objects and static variables/members [1], so its use is
