I wonder how you plan on doing that.

Furthermore, the method of registering the cleanup with an
unrelated sms(B) will not work if the registering sms(A)
is destroyed before the cleanup is run in B. In other
words, if A is destroyed the cleanup is still registered
in B. If B is reset/destroyed: boom.
Or maybe you were planning to unregister the function when
the thread exits (in which case it would probably work).

I'd opt for making the registration a bit more sophisticated.
A simple check for ancestry should be enough.
