I don't think that should be an error -- a warning, maybe, but not an error.
We are never actually creating an instance of X anywhere so there is no
actual problem.

Another thing that should probably be handled is yielding false when D
and/or B is not a class type rather than error. Also, it might be better to
reorder the template arguments so that it is "Base, Derived" not "Derived,
Base" as the name suggests and to be consistent with is_base_of.
