I know the style guide is against doing lots of work in a constructor, but that's mostly because it's hard to report failures, which you're not doing here anyway.
Thanks for the suggestion. I agree, this would look a bit cleaner to fold everything in the constructor (except the extra arguments to the constructor, but it will probably still be a net win)

The reason for a separate method is the little "shared_from_this()". It can't be done from the constructor since the object is not yet managed by a shared_ptr, so we need to do it post-construction.
