With apologies, I haven't had a chance to get involved in this debate... but
just to let you know that Boost.Math has a number of concept-architypes that
can test for these and other errors:

No need to search around for possible mistakes or casts... if there is an
"instantiate-everything" test, just throw the two real-number architypes at
the templates and see what breaks :-)

HTH, John.
