shm can be at different memory locations in all processes.  pointers don't
work.  you'd need to radically change the basic data types, which would
affect performance and make the code ugly.  so i think this is a bad idea.

btw, if you want to a shm database/hash table done properly, take a look
at sleepycat db.
