is_convertible was and is a major headache to get right for multiple
compilers, I would expect is_instance_of to suffer from the same problems.
One option would be to implement is_instance_of in terms of is_convertible:

template <template <class T, class U> class f>
struct conversion_tester
template <class T, class U>
conversion_tester(const f<T,U>&);

template <class From, template <class T, class U> class To>
struct is_instance_of_2
BOOST_STATIC_CONSTANT(bool, value = ::boost::is_convertible<From,
::boost::conversion_tester<To> >::value);

be warned that I haven't tried this out though!
