Yes, I was. A while back, I pointed out to Rani that is_base_and_derived
was insufficient to implement is_com_ptr, a trait I needed. In COM
programming, every interface inherits from IUnknown, and many COM objects
implement multiple interfaces. So is_base_and_derived<IUnknown,
MyCOMObject> was almost always ambiguous.
I was content to gripe, but Rani actually did something about it. The new
behavior of is_base_and_derived is very welcome, IMO.
