I just noticed, that the current implementation does not work with
gcc3.0.2 (it does work with gcc2.96 and KCC something)

gcc 3.0.2 complains that is_instance_of_N<...>::value is not a constant

Does anyone have a clue? I can see that there are different versions of
is_convertible for almost all compilers, so was this issue encountered
with is_convertible implementation?

Cheers, Jaakko
