But looking on the bright side, I did tighten up the semantics of
operator const void * as a result :-)

It would certainly be clearer, but it also would not compile :-( This is
based on the fix that Ed Brey posted some time back.

Which is fine, but the semantics are now tighter, ie the result behaves
a lot more like a bool than an arbitrary pointer. In fact, there is even
now a test for the behaviour.
