I seem to recall reviewing it at the time, but I just went over it  
once more.

I see no technical inaccuracies, I think it's written at a great level  
for introducing people unfamiliar with the concept to our RefPtr  
infrastructure, and I don't want to get into arguing tiny ways I would  
reword things as they are not at all important.

Conclusion - I think the document is in plenty-good shape to link to  
as-is and we can tweak it over time, answering the questions at the  
bottom as they come up.

One note about improving "clarity, scope, or presentation" - I  
thinking discussing all of our other types of smart pointers and  
shared classes is valuable, but should take place in different  
documents (perhaps linked to from some master document) as to not  
cloud the focus the (Pass)RefPtr document has.
