Sometimes we need to be able to clear a WeakPtr. Currently, you do so using the default constructor:

    m_aWeakPointerToSomething = WeakPtr<Something>();

It would be nicer to be able to write:


With the expectation that the WeakPtr would be 'null' after calling 'forget'.

It should reduce the weak pointer reference count by one on the object being pointed to.
