In other words, it's breaking more than just is_convertible_test:
is_convertible itself is effectively broken.

Specifically, I'd like to find another way to fix the other problems
which doesn't break is_convertible, but without more info it's pretty
hard to do. Resolving the iterator library issues depends on this.
