Agreed. I have gotten tired of it too.
I will remove the boost/cast.hpp asserts, except for the non-throwing
version of polymorpic_cast where the assert is critical, and will
document the potential ODR problem there. I will also revert the
name for that flavor to "safe_downcast". Thus it becomes exactly
what you proposed two months ago. I suppose people will argue about
the name, and thats okay, but let's move on.
