I still don't agree with this. Can you explain why the following is an
// Library function; returns a pointer to a newly allocated
shape* create_shape(const std::string& description);
// User code:
mov_ptr<Shape> p(create_shape("fuzzy dog"));
The static type is Shape*, but the dynamic type may be BorderCollie*.
Or are you now restricting your remarks to arrays?
