The first operator allows for explicit dereferencing such that 
*a_traceable_pointer returns the wrapped pointer.  The second one 
handles implicit type casts from TraceablePointer to T* in mixed 

With all these operators defined a TraceablePointer behaves nearly 
exactly like the wrapped pointer so that existing code only need minor 
modifications -- if at all.


P.S. Sorry, Ivan, for receiving this twice.  I've accidentally replied 
to you privately instead of to the list.
