in SaferCPlusPlus

The function used to obtain a (scope) access requester to an access-controlled scope object is make_xscope_asyncsharedv2acoreadwrite(). Note that it takes as its argument a scope pointer to the access-controlled object, not a scope pointer to the contained object. Btw, scope access requesters are an example of an object type that can be passed to other scope threads, but does not qualify (i.e. would induce a compile error) to be passed to non-scope threads.
