Subject: [boost] is_base_of<int, int> behaviour.
From: John Maddock (john_at_[hidden])

Some time ago we made is_base_of<int,int>::value true, for reasons that
escape me, and the TR1 followed this.

However, C++0X makes is_base_of<non_class, non_class>::value to be false,
which seems all round more logical to me.

While I'm sorting out what is_base_of<T, const T> does, it's a good time to
fix this as well. Are there any objections to changing the behaviour of
is_base_of to match C++0X?

Cheers, John.
