        <pre>Jean-Yves mentioned on Slack that supporting operator*() would make converting from RefPtr<T> to Ref<T> easier.

Alex seems to be pointing out that supporting operator*() would make converting from Ref<T> to RefPtr<T> harder / more error-prone.

It seems like the logic here is the same: There's an impedance mismatch because Ref<T>  offers more than RefPtr<T>.</pre>
